The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations hearing, “Tax Haven Banks and U. S. Tax Compliance,” examined how financial institutions located in offshore tax havens, including Liechtenstein and Switzerland, may be engaged in banking practices that could facilitate, and in some instances have resulted in, tax evasion and other misconduct by U.S. clients. The hearing also examined how U.S. domestic and international tax enforcement efforts could be strengthened. The Subcommittee issued a Subcommittee staff report in conjunction with the hearing summarizing its investigative findings.
