“Offshore Accounts, Tax Amnesties and Tax Compliance” (Tues., Apr. 3, 12:30 PM, VH 210)

On Tuesday, April 3 from 12:30 PM to 1:50 PM in Vanderbilt Hall Room 210, the Graduate Tax Program will host an event titled “Offshore Accounts, Tax Amnesties and Tax Compliance.”

In recent years, the federal government has pursued an aggressive crack down on U.S. taxpayers who have hid income in offshore bank accounts.  In a series of voluntary disclosure programs, the IRS has entered settlement agreements with thousands of U.S. taxpayers who have disclosed their accounts.  In other cases, the federal government has successfully prosecuted individuals who have not disclosed this information to the IRS.  This program will provide students with an overview of the offshore tax evasion dilemma and the government’s response and will also critique the use of tax amnesty programs as a way to increase voluntary compliance.  Participants in this event will offer both theoretical and “on the ground” analysis.

Moderator, Professor Joshua Blank, NYU School of Law
