Tax Court Awards $323k in Attorneys' Fees to Two Kersting Tax Shelter Investors Because of IRS Misconduct

The Tax Court on Wednesday awarded $322,693 in attorneys' fees (after a 33.3% reduction for "overlawyering") and $15,290 in expenses under § 6673(a)(2)(B)to two Kersting tax shelter investors (Kersting v. Commissioner, T.C. Memo. 1999-197 (June 17, 1999)) for expenses incurred during the remand proceedings stemming from IRS misconduct.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now did those IRS agents have to pay that $322,693, or did other taxpayers get stuck for that?
