KPMG tax trial delayed

KPMG tax trial delayed

Trial delayed until next year

Sixteen former KPMG employees facing trial over the selling of allegedly
bogus tax shelters to wealthy clients will not go on trial until January next
year.

The trial was due to begin on 11 September, but has now been moved to 15
January 2007 due to delays in turning over information to defense lawyers and a
dispute over the firm’s decision to cut off payment of the partners’ legal fees.

The judge hearing the trial said he might impose sanctions against the
government if all the material isn’t turned over by 15 November.

KPMG partners are suing their former employer over their mounting legal fees,
demanding that the firm foot the bill. KPMG is fighting the charge.

The partners deny any wrongdoing.
