Mr. Bachmann pleaded quilty. He knew of nominee tax haven entities and structures and often helped facilitate setting them up. And Mr. Bachmann is naming names..... Well, if the IRS follows up on that will that mean a decrease of the 1% to 0.9%?

Noted, thanks Nancy....good one.....I hope they put an end to this once and for all. Everyone needs to pay their fair share of taxes. These scoundrels must be held accountable.

There are rights for the 1%, and there are other laws for us. We would all end up in jail.

Noted. Thanks for this info, Nancy. Yes, it would be nice if these greedy scoundrels had huge fines and jail time....I'm going to add that to my next letter to Santa Claus. This is just the beginning of a big snowball, though, and I hope to be reading more about outcomes.

They pleaded guilty. Charge them for the all taxes which they helped the rich cheat the US Government then close all of their US branches.

I hope the IRS goes after all the back taxes owed by these bloated millionaires, and lock them up and take all their possessions, just like they would do to a little guy trying to just save maybe $1,000.

Of course they all knew about it, and the sad truth is that these greedy idiots will just go find another place to hide all their money, living well outside the outside the U.S., so that even if the IRS does prosecute them, it's highly unlikely the U.S. will ever get paid. They go after the little guy because we have no $ to defend ourselves. These people do.

Noted and Read with interest. Good now some of those who have been dumping money if foreign bank accounts now have to face the IRS. Great news, as it seems more names will come out of this investigation
