Tax Court Disallows Deductions for Unsubstantiated Expenses of Thomson-West Sales Rep

In Kyne v. Commissioner, T.C. Summ. Op. 2009-98 (June 25, 2009), the Tax Court upheld the IRS's disallowance of a Thomson-West sales rep's deductions for medical expenses, charitable contributions, and miscellaneous itemized deductions (including car expenses, parking fees and tolls, home office expenses, meals and entertainment expenses, and cell phone expenses) because he failed to provide substantiation for the expenses beyond those allowed by the IRS.

Pretty stupid and pointless. The opinion reads like it was written by an H&R Block 1st year "Tax Pro" , and the expenses claimed by this rep are the biggest list of trash I've ever read, even though they sound like 90% of every tax cheats typical Schedule A. So what is the point? They allowed quite a few of his lying deductions, paid staff and admin personel way more in salary, benefits and overtime to meet, discuss and disallow his ridiculous deducations, and this so-called case took 5 years to finalize. Typical ignorant IRS tax administration, in fact, disgusting.
