Tell the IRS to investigate and prosecute offshore tax evasion


Tell the IRS to investigate and prosecute offshore tax evasion

Recently, the IRS and its counterparts in the European Union and Australia gained access to 400 gigabytes of leaked data acquired by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. This data exposes potential tax evasion by individuals, companies, and private trusts through the use of offshore tax havens. These governmental agencies are beginning to sift through the data and pursue possible illegal activity.

This is exactly the type of work the IRS should be focusing on, and international coordination of this sort could be a game changer when it comes to cracking down on those who dodge their tax bills by hiding money around in secret accounts around the globe. 




Amidst allegations of politically motivated investigations into conservative organizations, this story will probably be overshadowed. Let’s make sure that doesn't happen, and that the IRS doesn’t get cold feet in the pursuit of these enormous leads.

Please sign our petition urging the IRS to investigate the use of offshore tax havens for possible tax evasion and prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law.
To the U.S. Internal Revenue Service–

In light of recent data acquired by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that exposes potential tax evasion by individuals, companies, and private trusts through the use offshore tax havens, we urge you to investigate and prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. Please don't get cold feet in light of recent scandals.
