Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud – What it means to you when monitoring BSA and filing SARs
August 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$199
Key Take Away
This training on BSA compliance will help you understand the concept of tax evasion and tax fraud and the difference between the two. Learn the best practices to identify tax fraud and how to report suspicious activity.
Bank Secrecy Act requires financial institutions to assist government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. In May 2013 FinCEN published issue #23 of The SAR Activity Review Trends Tips & Issues. Table 2 documents the most frequent activities defined in Category S – Other. Tax Fraud or Evasion makes up 22% of those cases. FinCEN goes on to discuss an Overview of Correspondent Banks, Tax Havens, Shell, Shelf and Offshore Companies and Trusts. They also discuss Tax Fraud or Evasion in their section on Significant Money Laundering Trends and Patterns by Accountants or CPAs. If FinCEN is giving this much time and attention to this topic, so should you.
