“Joint Chiefs of Global Tax Enforcement (J5)”

 

The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is launching a join effort of authorities from the UK, Canada, and Australia to “reduce the growing threat” of tax fraud related to cryptocurrencies worldwide. Members are the American Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI), the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), Canada’s Revenue Agency (CRA), Netherland’s Fiscale Inlichtingen- en Opsporingsdienst (FIOD), and the UK’s HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

 

“...organized criminals and tax cheats manipulate the system and exploit vulnerabilities for their personal gain. The J5 aims to break down those walls, build upon individual best practices, and become an operational group that is forward-thinking and can pressurize the global criminal community in ways we could not achieve on our own.”
