The United States Supreme Court on Tuesday, February 22, 2005 denied petitions for writ of certiorari in two separate cases involving charitable split-dollar insurance plans between individual taxpayers and the National Heritage Foundation.

Full Text:

The court let stand Gary L. Weiner v. Commissioner and Addis v. Commissioner. In the two cases, the lower courts ruled that National Heritage Foundation ("NHF") failed to provide the value of goods that the donors received for contributions to NHF in separate charitable split-dollar insurance transactions and thus denied the claimed charitable deductions.
