The findings within this report conclude with previous assumptions that banks have been acting illegally by aiding U.S taxpayers by utilizing their secrecy laws as a cloak, employing banking practices that aid tax evasion, not disclosing U.S client account with billions of dollars to the IRS, and have assisted their U.S. clients in structuring their foreign accounts to avoid QI reporting to the IRS.
