Tax

Joint Defense Facility Pine Gap in Alice Springs

This class action concerns Americans working in a Joint Defense Facility Pine Gap (JDFPG) in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. The complaint alleges that private tax information was illegally disclosed to their employers, and that the employees were later coerced into agreeing to disclosure of their tax information, to ensure that they were completing their returns as their employers wished.

Reservations.com has no direct agreements with hotels, the complaint for this class action alleges. Instead, it gets its room listings from Expedia, Inc. and that company’s subsidiaries, EAN.com, LP, Travelscape, LLC, and Hotels.com, LP. And, the complaint says, those companies overcharge Reservation.com’s customers for taxes and fees due on those rooms.

A group of companies and individuals, the complaint for this class action alleges, duped people into taking part in an illegal tax-shelter scheme it calls the Captive Insurance Strategies. The complaint claims that the group violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and committed fraud, among other things.

Forever 21 Store

The complaint for this class action alleges that retailer Forever 21 charged customers sales taxes on clothing that should have been exempt from it based on the purchaser’s send-to address. Plaintiff Laura Togut claims that she bought about twenty items of clothing from Forever 21’s website, with each item priced below $110, for a total of $283.40. The items were delivered to her New York City address, the complaint says, so the sale should have been exempt from sales tax, but Forever 21 charged an extra $22.90 for sales tax, bringing Togut’s order to $306.30.
