July 6, 2017), the US District Court for the Western District of Kentucky refused to compel a captive insurance company and the two entities it insured to provide privileged communications sought in an IRS audit, finding that the attorney-client privilege wasn’t waived by their sharing information or by their filing Tax Court petitions asserting reasonable cause defenses.
