Posted on Updated on

More Federal Agencies Are Using Undercover Operations, by Eric Lichtblau and William Arkinnov (15 Nov. 2014)

. . . At the Internal Revenue Service, dozens of undercover agents chase suspected tax evaders worldwide, by posing as tax preparers, accountants, drug dealers or yacht buyers and more, court records show. . .

It’s possible now that the IRS and Justice Department were dealt big defeats in criminal tax prosecutions of non-resident individuals, it is less likely that the focus of these IRS efforts will be on non-resident U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who live throughout the world?  See,  Part II: U.S. Citizens Residing Outside the U.S. Probably Have Some Solace Re: Acquittals of Foreign Bank Employees
