SHOW TRANSCRIPT

A major tax win for the estate of late pop icon Michael Jackson.

A U.S. tax court ruled the IRS inflated the value of his assets and image at the time of his death by more than $300 million.

That resulted in a tax bill for his family that was much higher than it should have been.

An executor overseeing the estate called it a huge victory for Jackson's children.
