Whenever we take a tax position or deploy a tax strategy there is uncertainty and risk. How will a tax authority react to the tax position or strategy that is being taken? Will it challenge the taxpayer’s position? And if it challenges, will the tax authority prevail? The stakes can be very high, involving both time and money.
This inherent risk and uncertainty has given rise to a sophisticated insurance market for tax insurance. Tax insurance provides protection should a tax position fail to qualify for its intended tax treatment. In its simplest sense, tax insurance provides coverage for identified, supportable tax positions for private equity funds, strategic acquirors, individuals, and virtually any other taxpayer.
