New York Toys With Out Of State Partner
Out of state investors in real estate partnerships in high tax states sometimes get nasty surprises, particularly if partnership management is not sensitive to their concerns. That appears to be what happened to Craig Olsheim based on a recent decision in the State of New York Division of Tax Appeals.
