Estate of Michael Jackson v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue: Tax Court Allows Testimony of Expert who Gave False Information

The United States Tax Court in Washington DC denied a motion to exclude the testimony of a government expert witness in a tax proceeding. The expert had given false information about not working on or writing a validation report for the IRS’ Examination Division for the third party’s taxpayer audit. The Jackson estate made a number of objections to the expert’s testimony including asking that it be excluded due to perjury. The court explains its logic in denying the motion in the linked order.
