Risk Distribution

Risk Distribution

Definition

Used in tax deductibility discussions, the term mandates that enough independent risks of unrelated parties be pooled to invoke the actuarial law of large numbers. In tax disputes, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and numerous courts have required the presence of both risk shifting and risk distribution to find a financial arrangement to be "insurance."
