Conopco, Inc. v. US, No. 07-3564

By FindLaw Staff on July 14, 2009 11:08 AM

In a dispute involving a federal income tax refund, summary judgment in favor of the government is affirmed where the court properly held that that 26 U.S.C. sec. 162(k)(1) disallows plaintiff from claiming the deduction available under 26 U.S.C. sec. 404(k)(1) for payments to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan trust in redemption of the preferred stock, as it inevitably involves an amount paid or incurred by a corporation in connection with the reacquisition of its stock.
