For more than a decade, the Department of Justice and Internal Revenue Service have devoted substantial resources to eradicating the use of offshore accounts to evade U.S. tax obligations.

But the United States is not the only country whose citizens use offshore vehicles to cheat on their taxes, and while U.S. taxpayers think of Switzerland and Caribbean islands as tax havens, many foreign nationals use U.S.-based vehicles to evade their own tax obligations.
