Over the past few months, we have been reporting on CIC Services’ lawsuit against the IRS and its unlawful Notice 2016-66. In a split decision, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals denied granting an injunction against, IRS Notice 2016-66, but the dissenting opinion was powerful and compelling. CIC Services has appealed the case to the U.S. Supreme Court and has picked up broad support in its case against the IRS and administrative state abuse of power.
In late February, we reported that the Tax Clinic At The Legal Services Center Of Harvard Law School submitted an Amicus Brief in support of CIC Services’ lawsuit – CLICK HERE
The wave of support continues to build. Since that time, three more Amicus Briefs have been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court by:
The United States Chamber Of Commerce – CLICK HERE
The CATO Institute – CLICK HERE
The Captive Insurance Associations Of Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Tennessee – CLICK HERE
As we have outlined before, the suit against IRS Notice 2016-66 is far bigger than the captive insurance industry. It is a long overdue effort to rein in the abuse of power by unelected officials in the IRS and the administrative state at large.
