  1. If IRS is keeping a close eye on the proceedings of the trustee and knows thus that 72% of the account values were distributed, then, using the $ amount on the checks the trustee issued is enough to calculate the actual profit MF Global customers actually made.

    If I am not in custody of profits, it is unethical for me to pay taxes on it. Period.

    Having prospects of return be present at end of 2011 is a moot point – would we rather not have the prospect of money being returned? At end of the year, whether the prospect was alive or not, income taxes are to be levied on *income* up until year end.

    There is another angle of illegality to this – for the taxes that I pay Govt on money not in my custody, I lose out on the interest that the money would’ve made – my hard earned money mind you. Will Govt. reimburse me?

    Mr. Geithner’s response just shows me the pre-existing rules which does NOT address relief for tax payers who have been cheated once and will be once more when they are forced to pay taxes.
