Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") Crimes and Tax Crimes (8/4/11)
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (commonly referred to as "FCPA") is much in vogue these days. Tax crimes often accompany FCPA violations. (See e.g., my prior blog The Giffen Plea -- The Cost of Justice (8/18/10)). Readers of this blog might appreciate reading Morgan R. Hirst and Elizabeth H. Jenkins, Adding Insult to Injury: Tax Consequences of FCPA Violations, 131 Tax Notes 1073 (June 6, 2011). The authors discuss, inter alia, the Giffen case.
