Mount Vernon, New York, Author Publishes New Book

Mount Vernon, NY (Vocus) October 5, 2010

Fundamentals of European Union Direct Tax, a new book by Dr. Felix Lessambo, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Dr. Felix Lessambo is an adjunct associate professor at St. Johns University (The Peter J. Tobin School of Business), where he teaches International Taxation, Individual Tax Planning, and Financial Reporting: Evaluation and Analysis. He also teaches International Finance, Financial Markets & Institutions, and Corporate of Mergers & Acquisitions at the King Graduate School of Business (Monroe College). Prior to his St. Johns appointment, Dr. Lessambo taught International Tax, European Union Tax, and Corporate Tax at the University of Kinshasa (DRC).

He specializes in the taxation of international transactions, transfer pricing, E.U. laws, and international finance. He is the author of Taxation of International Business Transactions and several leading articles in international tax law reviews. It is particularly in this area of E.U. direct taxation regime that Dr. Lessambo has been the most challenging. He foresaw what others were not willing to see, to hear, or to acknowledge.

Dr. Lessambo is the first scholar to argue against the incompatibility of the French Controlled Foreign Corporation (CFC), the French transfer pricing provision (Article 57), the French thin-capitalization rules (Article 212), the French taxation regime of artists (Article 155A), and the Luxembourg Securitization Law, with respect to both the E.U. laws and the OECD treaty.

Ten years earlier, in 1999, ahead of his time, Dr. Lessambo came out, for the first time, according to Professor Bernard Castagnede, with the opinion that the sole way to crack down the use of preferred tax regimes is to broaden the scope of the exchange of information among tax and financial authorities. The G-20 Summit in London has adopted the opinion in the midst of the world financial crisis (2009).

He lectured with the European American Tax Institute (EATI) and other business organizations.

He lives in New York and serves on the boards of various Christian organizations.

Fundamentals of European Union Direct Tax is a 232-page paperback with a retail price of $ 21.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-9951-1. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Foreclosure Decision Supports Information in New Book for Troubled Homeowners

Eugene, OR (PRWEB) July 13, 2011

A decision handed down on May 31, 2011 in the case of Herrera v. Deutsch in the California 3rd District Appellate Court in El Dorado, case number C065630, has massive implications for homeowners facing foreclosure. The court ruled that the documents provided by the defendants, Deutsch Bank National Trust Company, and the California Reconveyance Company, were insufficient to prove that that bank had interest in in the property, and thus the right to foreclose and sell the home. This ruling has established an important case law for California about foreclosure and lender’s standing to foreclose. Results for this case can be found at

Author of the Foreclosure Defense Guidebook, Vince Khan, says, This is a great victory for homeowners facing foreclosure in California. In his book, Khan explains, in plain English, the banking worlds claim, or lack thereof, on the housing market. He tells his own story of challenging his lenders, empowering himself and everyone who seeks his guidance to look for alternatives, even when it looks as if none exist. In Foreclosure Defense Guidebook, Khan discusses the legality of the foreclosure process and how banks play off consumer ignorance to take houses which arent actually theirs.

Khan felt it important to release this book in paper format to give even more people access to this information. The people who need this help the most may not have the luxury of a computer with which to read this book.

Foreclosure Defense Guidebook can be purchased on Vince Khans website for $ 12.99 and on An ebook version is available on the website for no cost. For more information or to speak with Khan, please contact him at the address below.
