On December 13th, the Isles of Man, Jersey and Guernsey signed an intergovernmental agreement with the United States to improve international tax compliance and implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), a US federal law designed to combat offshore tax evasion. The Isles signed a similar agreement with the United Kingdom in October.

On December 13th, the Isles of Man, Jersey and Guernsey signed an intergovernmental agreement with the United States to improve international tax compliance and implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), a US federal law designed to combat offshore tax evasion. The Isles signed a similar agreement with the United Kingdom in October.

“Jubilee USA sees the signing of these agreements as critical first steps in promoting transparency,” said Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of Jubilee USA Network.

Under the agreement, financial institutions on the Isles will report information about individual accounts owned by American citizens, in compliance with FATCA. FATCA was enacted in 2010 in an attempt to recover an estimated $100 billion a year in unpaid taxes on funds held in overseas accounts.

“These agreements are building blocks to create a more transparent and accountable economy,” added LeCompte.

Jubilee USA Network is an alliance of more than 75 US organizations, 300 faith communities and 50 Jubilee global partners. Jubilee's mission is to build an economy that serves, protects and promotes participation of the most vulnerable. Jubilee USA has won critical global financial reforms and more than $130 billion in debt relief to benefit the world's poorest people. www.jubileeusa.org

Not FATCA. It should be FATCAT
to indicate who the tax cheats are!
