LOS ANGELES (USA), 05 MAY – A United States tax court has recognized a major victory for Michael Jackson’s heirs after a years-long legal battle. The American media reported it. In fact, the court found that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – the US government agency responsible for collecting taxes – at the time of the death of the king of pop enormously inflated the value of Jackson’s assets and image, leading to too high a taxation imposed on his heirs. The IRS had estimated three controversial aspects of the singer’s value at the time of his death in 2009 at approximately $ 482 million. In his ruling issued yesterday, Judge Mark Holmes reduced that figure to 111 million, much closer to the heirs’ estimates. Executors said it was a huge and unequivocal victory for Jackson’s children.
