Porisky strikes again!
You may recall the infamous Canadian tax protestors Russ Porisky and Elaine Gould, whose efforts have landed them in jail (blogged here earlier this year). Their latest victims are a dentist and her (American) husband, who pleaded guilty this week to evading almost a million dollars in personal taxes and to helping numerous "students" (mostly dentists) do the same. The Ontario Superior Court Justice Colin McKinnon hearing the case said the “preposterous” tax scheme “shows remarkable hubris and contempt for the rule of law.” Dentists, you can't use these schemes to avoid paying your taxes. Learn from the masters: you have to set up a double Irish/Dutch sandwich for that.
