Tax Risks are Real
Current GAAP pronouncements permit funds to operate the fund with undisclosed non- negligible tax risk. The key strategy is acting ahead of the curve before these non-negligible risks materialize into NAV-destroying real tax risk.
Our Restructuring Solutions Work
Our restructuring programs are designed to quickly identify hidden tax risk by performing tax due diligence on the fund. In the event risks are found, Logical Formulas recommends and helps to negotiate a restructured investment option.
Some forms of U.S. tax risk can approach a marginal tax rate of 55 percent of an offshore fund's returns -- plus interest -- plus potential penalties. Combine CONTINGENT TAX RISK with TAX RISK SHIFT and the remaining investors can wake up with a terrible headache.
Our web page also explains how an unscrupulous or uninformed fund manager might gamble with tax risk audit probabilities in what we call a BERNOULLI FUND. See the "True Risk Disclosure?" tab for information as to how this might happen. Investors engage Logical Formulas to help them evaluate whether or not they might be invested in such a fund.
Fund managers do not necessarily need to be unscrupulous. The IRS just recently initiated new hedge fund audit programs. So the investor can have contingent tax risk just because the fund manage was not aware of the potential tax problem.
The interesting question is who pays the legal fees and the tax bill if and when the contingent risk materializes into real tax risk?
Logical Formulas designs effective solutions to solve your contingent tax risk problems.
New Economic Conditions Demand Different Investment Solutions
Maybe now is the best time to redeem your investment in a fund? Maybe shifting your investment to a managed account in the same fund strategy (but with better tax controls) is the best way to manage hidden tax risk?

Tax-exempt investors and foreign investors are particularly vulnerable.
