U.S. Engaging with More than 50 Jurisdictions to Curtail Offshore Tax Evasion

On November 8, 2012, the U.S. Treasury announced that it is actively engaged with over 50 countries and jurisdictions to enter into Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs) for compliance with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) tax provisions.

The Treasury published a model IGA this past summer and announced they were drafting a second model shortly after the first release. The Treasury stated they intend to use the models as the basis for bilateral agreements with other countries and jurisdictions paving the way for the U.S.’s effort to boost cooperation in countering offshore tax evasion and improving global tax compliance. The first model was signed by the United Kingdom in September 2012.
