“US the world’s biggest tax haven”, hear delegates

The head of Florida’s international bankers’ association (FIBA) categorised the US as a tax haven and one of the world’s “least transparent jurisdictions” at Latin Lawyer’s 2nd Annual Tax Summit, held in Miami yesterday.

“The US has not signed up to the common reporting standards (CRS), so information is coming in but not necessarily going out,” said FIBA CEO David Schwartz. “We are one of the least transparent jurisdictions in the world – the US is the world’s biggest tax haven.” The CRS is an OECD initiative that compels signatories to exchange tax and financial information with the aim of combating tax evasion. Though the US has not signed up, around 80 countries have.
