IRS Hikes Offshore Account Penalty To 50% For Stanford Companies

The IRS updated (12/23/14) its list of so-called bad foreign banks where offshore accounts trigger a 50% (rather than 27.5%) penalty in the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP). The IRS added Sovereign Management and Legal, Ltd., plus certain branches of Bank Leumi. Neither addition should come as a surprise. Both banks have been targets of the Department of Justice.

 Israel’s Bank Leumi is fresh off its $400 million settlement with the U.S. and New York, so its addition to the 50% list is the other shoe dropping. Sovereign’s addition should also raise no eyebrows, coming on the heels of numerous that John Doe Summonses issued to FedEx, DHL, UPS, HSBC relating to Sovereign. Presently, taxpayers in the 2014 OVDP face a 50% penalty if they had accounts at any of the following:


  1. UBS AG
  2. Credit Suisse AG, Credit Suisse Fides, and Clariden Leu Ltd.
  3. Wegelin & Co.
  4. Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG
  5. Zurcher Kantonalbank
  6. swisspartners Investment Network AG, swisspartners Wealth Management AG, swisspartners Insurance Company SPC Ltd., and swisspartners Versicherung AG
  7. CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank Limited, its predecessors, subsidiaries, and affiliates
  8. Stanford International Bank, Ltd., Stanford Group Company, and Stanford Trust Company, Ltd.
  9. The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited in India (HSBC India)
  10. The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited (also known as Butterfield Bank and Bank of Butterfield), its predecessors, subsidiaries, and affiliates
  11. Sovereign Management & Legal, Ltd., its predecessors, subsidiaries, and affiliates
  12. Bank Leumi le-Israel B.M., the Bank Leumi le-Israel Trust Compay Ltd., Bank Leumi (Luxembourg) S.A., Leumi Private Bank S.A., and Bank Leumi USA

  2. All Antiguan Banks should be sanctioned until the FSRC and the Liquidators show where the money went.
