Disclosure History

ROBERT LEE WHITE has 1 Disclosure Event(s).

Date: June 10, 2015
Category: Customer Dispute
Allegations: Client deposited qualified funds into a non-qualified account. Client did not pay the taxes due. Faced with IRS taxes and penalties, client filed a complaint.
Damage Amount Requested: $29,210.00
Settlement Amount: $22,000.00
Broker Comment: Client filed a claim upon IRS accountability that she pay the tax liability that she generated. Both RR and KSI believe the claim to be without merit. Client deposited qualified funds into her personal checking account, and then funded her investment purchase from that checking account. Client indicated at the time that the source of funds was 'savings when she was working' and in no way indicated that these funds had ever had a qualified status. Additionally, client received subsequent 1099 statements showing the tax disposition of these funds and made no mention of any tax status concerns until being required by the IRS to pay the tax liability. Further, client received monthly statements as well as notifications each time a trade was placed. KSI determined that the cost of arbitration could potentially generate a higher cost than settlement, and solely as a business decision chose to settle the claim with the client in the amount of $22,000. Regardless of the lack of merits of the case, pursuant to his employment contract with KSI, RR was required to contribute to the settlement.
