Double Taxation: A Take On All Things Taxes

Author of Lightly-Read Tax Blog Publishes Soon-to-be-Lightly-Read Article in Tax Adviser

We originally blogged about the Retief Goosen Tax Court case the day it happened back in June:

https://double-taxation.com/2011/06/10/tax-court-settles-case-involving-professional-golfer-offers-lesson-in-sourcing-of-endorsement-income/

We knew the case was noteworthy, as it established a much-needed precedent for determining the character and source of the worldwide endorsement income earned by international athletes and entertainers. We didn’t know that our blog post would turn into a quote in a Bloomberg article on the case:

And we certainly didn’t know suspect at that time that the implications of Goosen would continue to garner notice, eventually necessitating a complete analysis in the September issue of the Tax Adviser:

We hope you enjoy.
