  • Publication number: 20060242045
    Abstract: A method for tax attenuation in accordance with the present invention matches an income stream from an investment to a cost of debt to hold the cost of the tax in abeyance. An amount is invested to gain returns. An amount is borrowed at a cost to pay the tax liability. An investment portfolio is established in order to create a positive spread between the returns on the invested amount and the cost of the borrowed amount such that the periodic returns on the invested amount is sufficient to pay at least the periodic interest payments due on the borrowed amount. In addition, the investment portfolio is established with investments sufficient to cover the margin of the borrowed amount. In addition, the returns of the investment are used to pay interest on the borrowed amount. Finally, the returns of the investment are used to pay off, in full, the amounts borrowed.
