Again, I wasn't tryiing to steal your thunder. I simply didn't remember the original conversation. So please accept my apologies...and I'll do whatever I can to correct the oversight, and even point folks to the thread so they can read the entire discussion.
Class shows, my friend. Apology accepted.
Given the disagreement between Kaye's conclusion and your own, I think it only prudent to point people to the thread. As to attribution, I'd like to be identified by my real name and screen name. I believe I've seen ElricSeven's "professional" identity mentioned on the site from time to time; I'd certainly appreciate being identified as a practicing litigation attorney in Los Angeles.
Off the top of my head, language along the lines of the following should do the trick: "The first person I'm aware of to broach this idea was Robert Shore, a Los Angeles litigation attorney and regular contributor to the Tax Strategies board as Bob78164. In his May 1, 1999, post [the word "post" should be linked in threaded mode], he calls this technique the 'Shore sale' and analyzes its availability under the then-recent amendments to the Code. Ultimately, after an exchange with Kaye Thomas of www.fairmark.com , Bob concluded that the Shore sale does not work."
I'm by no means wedded to this language either in content or style. It's just a starting point that I suggest. --Bob
