Internal Revenue Service offers major tax benefit to Ponzi Scheme Clawback Payments

ATTN: PONZI Scheme Victims -- The most recent Internal Revenue Service ruling allows clawback victims of Ponzi schemes to maximize their tax refunds and deduct their losses in years that would otherwise be closed by the Statute of Limitations. This is in the event the deductions are more valuable in the earlier years for purposes of tax refunds.

The law permits tax deductions for losses from financial fraud under the theft loss deduction category.

If it has been decided that you are not eligible for the I.R.S Safe Harbor - then you will use the law. 

There are many ways to recover valuable income tax refunds from losses from financial crimes that are either not actual ponzi schemes or that are Ponzi Schemes that do not fit the standards of the safe harbor.  The law permits tax deductions for losses from financial fraud under the theft loss deduction category.

This is a more difficult task than relying on the safe harbor rules. The taxpayer must be careful to prove the theft, the amount of the loss and the time of the loss if the taxpayer is going to be successful.
