I read a New York Times article recently about this guy who opened his own tax-exempt insurance company and used it to avoid paying taxes on his gigantic investment profits. It is all supposedly legal.

I always think if you are just an average taxpayer with relatively simple returns, hiring an accountant will not help you pay a lot less money. Are these legal loopholes or clever maneuvering only worthwhile to explore if you are really rich?
