In United States v. Owensboro Dermatology Assocs., P.S.C., 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 105099 (W.D. Ky. July 6, 2017), the US District Court for the Western District of Kentucky refused to compel a captive insurance company and the two entities it insured to provide privileged communications sought in an IRS audit, finding that the attorney-client privilege wasn’t waived by their sharing information or by their filing Tax Court petitions asserting reasonable cause defenses.
