What started as a guest post on the Money Smarts Blog called “Why 99% of financial advisors should be shot out of a cannon” (which has since been removed by the blog owner) had ballooned into a heated discussion on multiple blogs about many things. The promoters behind the post includes someone (Martin Horvath) who has been banned for life by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association. He is now back promoting an aggressive tax strategy. Some bloggers and many commenters have tried to find out more information. They are not happy with Martin, and Martin is not happy with them. I reached out to Martin Horvath to see if he would agree to an interview. He did. I recorded the interview and am posting it here for all to hear. NOTE: It is about 60 minutes in length.
I think it would be worthwhile to read the following posts on various blogs and also to read through the comments. Things got pretty heated in a short amount of time.
- Larry MacDonald: Reduce your taxes by 100%?
- Larry MacDonald: Tax Schemes and Financial Tuneups
- Canadian Capitalist: A scheme to 100% of income taxes? No Thanks.
- Canadian Capitalist: A tuneup to skip
You can listen to it here (separate website for the podcasts).
