New opinion — tax reversal

CA3 reversed today in a tax appeal, holding that the district court erred in summarily denying the taxpayer’s estate’s argument that a tax expert’s mistaken advice excused its late payment.

The case was Estate of Thouron v. US. Opinion by Ambro, joined by Hardiman and Greenaway. Arguing counsel were Maureen McBride for the estate and Jonathan Cohen for the government.
