Over the years I have received numerous inquires from individuals who were U.S. non-filers living in Mexico. They all beleived that the Mexican officials were either to disorganized, lazy or brideable to ever report them to U.S. authorities.

I just thought that I might point out to them that there seemes to be an increased interest on the part of the U.S. in seeking this type of individual. In addition, in an attempt to increase investment and maximize benefits under NAFTA, the Mexican government is co-operating in both training Mexican tax officials and allowing much greater direct access to IRS investigators. One of the developments has been some recent amendments to the U.S.-Mexican tax treaty (http://www.tax-news.com/asp/story/story.asp?storyname=12569). However, I thought I would ask some of our posters in Mexico to comment on whether they have seen any increase activity "on the ground".

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
