as a new investor i for one apprecate your willing to give up your own time and money to prove this works,Hi Julia
As a tax expert, yourself, surely you understand that weeks could be months....
But, if you know of a quicker way to get an answer then I am quite prepared to consider it.
Remember, I am not doing this for me; nor for my clients, but instead to attempt to get some closure on this topic and avoid the fear mongering.
i am just wondering, if in the mean time while you are waiting for your answer, chris comes back and says everything is ok and has the PBR and ATO rulings to prove it, would there then be a reason to continue with your approach?
i also believe no matter what dale does to prove it, the amount of different deeds for HDTs will always lead to confusion on this subject... im sure if dale and chris pull it off, there will be another accountant trying to push it just that little bit further...
