    “and the need for the Federal government to continue to step up its efforts to rein in tax haven abuse” rather than pursuing political opponents of the administration and destroying incriminating evidence?

    Tilting at windmills is for crazy people. There is no way to stop tax evasion, any more than you can stop smuggling. The only thing you can do is limit these activities by making taxes easier to pay. If everyone only had to pay 10% on income instead of the 35%-50% with local, state, and federal taxes, it would make evasion more of a risk for less of a reward. If businesses weren’t taxed at all, as they shouldn’t be as they are all owned by someone, they would gladly tell who got their profits and wouldn’t be hiding assets offshore. If the US became a tax haven, all the other tax havens in the world would go out of business, as all the Trillions of Dollars in them would go to the US where it would earn more and be safer.
