By issuing a new rule reducing the incentive fees assessed by hedge funds for institutional investors, the sector may begin to invest into the hedge fund industry at a lower cost.
Bloomberg reports: “The ruling, 2014-18, clarifies that hedge funds can charge incentive fees cumulatively rather than annually without running afoul of a tax law change adopted in 2008. These fees, typically equaling 15 percent to 20 percent of an investor’s profits, comprise a big portion of a hedge-fund manager’s annual revenue.”
The IRS also today announced the adoption of a “Taxpayer Bill of Rights” that will provide US taxpayers with a better understanding of their rights. The the new bill takes the multiple existing rights embedded in the tax code and groups them into 10 broad categories.
