Amway activity ruled a hobby

The United States Tax Court, James E & Robyn Hess VS Commissioner under TC summary opinion 2016-27 has ruled that AMWAY activity is a hobby and losses are not deductible. The internal revenue service won this case for the years 2005-2011 for a total recapture of losses in the amount of $125,000.00. We estimate that the income tax on that amount to be $25,000.00 plus penalties and interest witch we also estimate to be $33,000.00 for a total due the IRS $58,000.00.

In my 51 years of practice I have never had a client make a profit in AMWAY.
