U.S. taxpayers that sell, lease or license “export property” which is manufactured, produced or grown in the United States (more than 50% of the DISC materials sold must be made in America), can take advantage of strong support for their export profits in the Internal Revenue Code.
The IC-DISC has been approved as an acceptable tax planning entity for the export of American produced computer software and programs as early as 1985. In 1998, a very detailed set of Treasury Regulations were issued that have added certainty to this area of the law.
Over the past 38 years, Richard S. Lehman has established a sophisticated private practice focusing on tax law. His background, education, and experience has distinguished him in this complex field. A published author and noted speaker, Mr. Lehman has carved a reputation as a powerful client advocate. He is a graduate of Georgetown Law School with a Master’s of tax law from New York University Law School and four years of government service as a senior attorney with the Chief Counsel’s Office of the Internal Revenue Service and as a law clerk on the U.S. Tax Court. Unique to his practice is his position as a sole practitioner. A one-time partner in one of the nation’s largest law firms, Mr. Lehman has found that practicing on his own matches his client’s entrepreneurial spirit. Central to Mr. Lehman’s practice is recognizing that legal needs do not exist in a vacuum.
