Meester belastingontduiker

Mooi portret van John Carroll, fiscaal jurist bij Davis Polk en een van de ontdekkers van mazen in de wet van Amerikaanse belastingwetgeving. “Around the Manhattan offices of Davis Polk, Carroll was known as a wit and a curmudgeon. To keep fellow lawyers on their toes, he slipped nonsense words, such as “phlaminimony,” into legal documents. He always seemed to do his best work in the middle of the night. His office was a mess. He didn’t own a television set. If someone asked how he was doing, he’d reply, “They haven’t caught me yet.”””
