CTJ Submits Testimony on Proposed Tax Treaties

| | Bookmark and Share

On Tuesday, the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations considered proposed tax treaties with France, New Zealand, and Malta. CTJ director Robert McIntyre and Wayne State University law professor Michael McIntyre submitted written testimony to the Committee arguing that the treaties are based on standards that are widely recognized as obsolete and ineffective in catching offshore tax cheating. They point out that it makes no sense for the U.S. to wrap up major litigation over Switzerland's UBS and then enter into treaties with other countries that would not help us find the sort of cheating that took place in the UBS case.
