Tax Court Smashes IRS & Allows Abusive Captive Insurance Company Tax Savings

Securitas Holdings, Inc.  in addition, Subsidiaries, Petitioner V. Commissioner of Internal Revenue  is the ultimate humiliation for the IRS.   It is not just a taxpayer victory.  It is the blue print for the tried and true method of “saving for a rainy day” and saving taxes.

Successful small businesses can form their own private insurance company.  The tax law exempts the “small captive” from taxation.  The business deducts the insurance premiums and the small captive does not pay tax on the income.  A “small captive” is any captive insurance company with insurance premiums less than $1.2 million.

Never heard of this law?  Well,  it has been around since 1986.  Last century, most small captives were offshore.  Now, states such as Utah, Hawaii, Montana and Arizona are the most popular locations.  Offshore, my favorite location is the British Virgin Islands.

The small captive either insures the risks itself or re-insures (which means it paying wholesale prices for the insurance).  This small business tax plan allows you to control which insurance claims are settled and which ones are fought.   Like an insurance company, your small captive will make money…. lots of money.

A few years ago, I hosted a California Society of CPA  continuing education seminar on this topic with the insurance law expert, attorney Jeff Moffat.  Below is a portion of the seminar.  If you want to brainstorm a captive for your business, then call me, Brian Dooley, CPA, MBT,  for a complimentary consultation at 94-939-3414.
