how U.S. citizens
and residents can avoid taxes with foreign
corporations. Prior to 1962,

discover secret foreign
corporations. Most U.S. citizens who
ventured offshore were able to
evade taxes with substantial safety.

income in foreign banks, foreign trusts,
foreign corporations and
foreign mutual funds.
