Dow Chemical cannot get $1 bln deductions on sham partnerships

Dow Chemical Co is not entitled to more than $1 billion of tax deductions based on a decade of transactions with "sham" partnerships that Goldman Sachs Group Inc and the law firm King & Spalding promoted, a federal appeals court decided on Wednesday. A unanimous three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a lower court ruling that Dow entered the two Chemtech partnerships that ran from 1993 to 2003 mainly to avoid taxes, and had no legitimate business purpose for them.
