Corporate Tax Shelters 

Curbing abusive corporate tax shelters is a priority for the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department. Developing a strategy to deal with abusive corporate tax shelters is a major strategic initiative of Large and Mid-Size Business (LMSB).

LMSB's Office of Tax Shelter Analysis (OTSA) is responsible for planning, coordinating, and providing assistance to revenue agents working abusive corporate tax shelter issues. More detailed information about OTSA and abusive corporate tax shelters can be found in the Abusive Corporate Tax Shelters Background Paper , and the Department of the Treasury's White Paper.

Also available is an August 28, 2001 press release announcing an agreement between the Internal Revenue Service and Merrill Lynch resolving issues relating to tax shelter registration penalties as well as a June 27, 2002 press release announcing an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to resolve issues relating to tax shelter registration and list maintenance.

The IRS toll-free number to the Tax Shelter Hotline is 1-866-775-7474.
