Tax attorney Kevin Packman was quoted in a Tax Notes article regarding a John Doe summons on three United States financial institutions that could help identify residents of Finland hiding income in U.S. bank accounts. The author recalls that the U.S. has previously used John Doe summonses to gather information from other treaty-partner nations in the past.
Mr. Packman states that seeking out this information is "a reminder to the world that the U.S. does in fact cooperate, and they certainly will honor whatever agreements are in place to share information [with] foreign governments
about their citizenry.”
