I was just thinking that dude has been on a hiatus for a long time. You can't just take off time like that and have that type of lifestyle and not work. If he would of cut back his lifestyle he would of been fine. Another thing people don't know is that a lot of people cut back on there accountant being one of the first things to go, because its a huge expense but they don't realize its a lot of work to do and think anyone can do it.
and really accountants don't cost that much, you can get good entry level ones for around 40k per year, but when you're managing large amounts of money like that you'll spend about 100-200k for someone with experience.
that little bit of money which just ends up being a tax write off will go a long way
