For the last five years, the United States government has devoted significant attention and resources to how U.S. taxpayers are investing their money with special focus on offshore investments, gold, and retirement savings. In 2006, Congress held hearings and issued a report on the offshore banking activities of U.S. taxpayers that led U.S. Senator Carl Levin to state that the “universe of offshore tax cheating has become so large that no one, not even the United States government, could go after all of it.” The hearings and report began a flurry of activity by the United States government intended to crack down on the use of offshore bank accounts by U.S. citizens.
