    Turning the Tables: The United States as a Tax Haven Destination

    1 PM GMT

    The IRS and Department of Justice spend countless hours every year investigating tax havens across the world, but is it possible that the world’s most significant tax haven is the good ol’ US of A? This panel will explore claims that foreigners (sometimes with the assistance of unwitting US lawyers) are using the United States to hide from taxes in their home country and/or launder their ill-gotten gains. How significant is the problem and is the United States government trying to do anything about it are two questions the panel will consider. The panel will also look at what other countries are doing to combat tax evasion connected with the United States, including the use of information exchange agreements and court process. Finally, the panel will discuss what US lawyers need to look out for to avoid being complicit in these illegal schemes.
