IRS tax evasion whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld, whose disclosures broke the seal of Swiss bank secrecy, was recently featured in a story published by Full Measure.
Birkenfeld, a former international banker with UBS (Switzerland), was the first whistleblower to report wealthy Americans’ use of illegal offshore accounts for tax evasion.
In the Full Measure video, Birkenfeld explained the process;
“What we would do is we would set up accounts for Americans in Geneva or Zurich where they had a numbered account, and they wouldn’t pay any capital gains tax, no income tax, no inheritance tax, and Swiss bank secrecy allowed no one to look at that account. Government, ex-wives, tax authorities, business partners, whatever.”
