Readers of this blog know that we are always following reports of data leaks and breaches, especially when they concern foreign bank accounts or tax information. Several countries openly pay bank employees to steal and disclose otherwise confidential account information. Those governments aren’t looking to hack accounts or steal; instead they want to know who has an unreported offshore account. While the U.S. won’t pay bankers to “steal” information, they certainly are willing to..

Several days ago I had the opportunity to attend an offshore finance conference in Miami. Present were several senior managers and lawyers assigned to the IRS’ Offshore Compliance Initiative. These are the IRS folks in charge of FATCA and FBAR enforcement.

According to a wire report from Reuters, Vadian Bank AG, a small bank located in St. Gallen, Switzerland, is the latest bank to cooperate with the U.S. Department of Justice. In 2013, the U.S. government offered a voluntary disclosure program for Swiss banks that helped Americans hide their assets from the IRS. Earlier this spring, another Swiss bank, BSI, settled with the government.

Taylor was found guilty this week earlier this year by a federal jury in San Diego. Jurors convicted him of 19 felonies including tax evasion and aggravated identity theft. Prosecutors say that he used stole the identities of dead children to help him evade federal income taxes.

Trying to big earn fees as special servicer while simultaneously attempting to buy the property creates a huge conflict of interest. Typically, those conflicts hurt both the bondholders and the borrowers. The only winners, of course, are the special servicers.

The United States and Canada have long enjoyed very close ties. That relationship isn’t likely to change in the near future, although FATCA – the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act – has angered many Canadians. Some equate FATCA with U.S. imperialism and say the law threatens Canada’s sovereignty.

Officially, India has not signed an agreement to participate or enforce the U.S. FATCA legislation. Short for the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, FATCA requires foreign banks to become the eyes and ears for the IRS. That means beginning this year, offshore banks must examine their account base and next year, report to the IRS accounts with ties to the United States. Banks that do not comply face stiff sanctions.

As a former agent and Assistant Attorney General – Tax, I know how long it takes for agents to build a successful criminal tax evasion case. It isn’t unusual for agents to expend upwards of 1000 hours on a single case. If successful, the defendant often winds up in jail. There are other ways of combating willful tax evasion, however.
