This Article examines whether the management fee waiver strategy used by private equity firms to convert ordinary income into long-term capital gains actually works. Scholars have almost uniformly condemned the strategy, calling it "extremely aggressive," "profoundly piggish," or illegal. However, this Article shows that the critics substantially overstate their case (the provision of law most frequently cited by the critics doesn't even exist), especially in light of the changes in the tax-administrative law landscape wrought by Mayo v. United States.
