OECD Initiative on Tax Havens
DIANE Publishing, 2010 - 15 pages
Since the 1990s, the Org. for Econ. Cooperation and Develop. (OECD) has pursued the issues of bribery and tax havens, resulting in changes to certain U.S. laws. In addition, the OECD spearheaded an international agree. to outlaw crimes of bribery, and it coordinates efforts aimed at reducing the occurrence of money laundering, corruption, and tax havens. On May 4, 2009, Pres. Obama outlined his Admin¿s. policy to ¿crack down on illegal tax evasion¿ and to close loopholes. Tax havens cost the U.S. $100 billion each year in lost tax revenues.
