Court Grants IRS "John Doe" Summonses on US Banks!
Posted in Offshore Account Update, UBS / HSBC on November 13, 2013 | Share
The Internal Revenue Service has been granted authority by a US court to issue summonses to five US banking institutions, requiring them to produce information on individuals suspected of tax evasion. Those banks are Bank of New York Mellon, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, and Bank of America.
The alleged tax evaders are thought to be holding money in undisclosed accounts at two banks in particular. One is Zurcher Kantonalbank, a Swiss bank, and the other is The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Ltd. This is just the next step in the IRS's and Department of Justice's plan to find those individuals that have undisclosed bank accounts around the world.
