This case involves several high-income individuals who purchased tax credits that were later denied as fraudulent, resulting in the individuals receiving notices of tax deficiency for the years of the tax credit. Specifically, the individuals purchased tax credits with the intention of lowering their taxable income. The tax credits were later deemed fraudulent and the seller served prison time for federal tax fraud. The credit scores of the individuals who purchased the tax credits were subsequently harmed due to the tax deficiency notices they received. As a result, the individuals experienced credit related issues when attempting to invest and purchase property. An expert in financial damages was sought to quantify the damages related to the plaintiff’s lowered credit scores.
