1. I'm all about boycotting QVC

And if this gets my wife to stop buying from QVC, we will save a bundle.

6. Owned By Tax Dodger Philip Anschutz

A federal appeals court ruled against Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz Tuesday, finding he and his subsidiary company together owed more than $94 million in taxes.

The Denver Business Journal explains the amount is comprised of $17.3 million from both Philip and his wife, Nancy, and $77 million from The Anschutz Co., a corporation owned entirely by Anschutz. Anschutz was made aware of the deficiencies in 2007, after which he paid the taxes and filed an appeal.

The tax dispute stems from stock transactions in 2000 and 2001, which Business Week says were built to portion taxes over a period of several years. Regulators maintain the transactions were outright sales, while Anschutz says they should be qualified as pending transactions and an essential business tool for raising capital.

According to court documents obtained by the LA Times, Liberty Media Corp. argues in a friend-of-the-court filing that the money was used as a loan. Money rooted in the transaction was used to save Sirius XM Radio Inc. from bankruptcy.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/28/phillip-anschutz-owes-millions_n_1173385.html
