The only noise from the IRS in the Federal Register for 30 October, the thirtieth day after the close of the calendar quarter, is a request for comments about Form 3468, which you fill in to take tax credits for coal, gasification, or other energy projects. There is no Quarterly Publication of Individuals, Who Have Chosen To Expatriate, As Required By Section 6039G, With Too Many, Commas In The, Title.
So Tim’s question still stands: will the “name-and-shame” list come out right before the election? Will the names of ordinary emigrants be abused in order to pump up voter outrage about all the “wealthy people fleeing America”? Or will the list be delayed until a more convenient date?
Anyway, the IRS whistleblower program is looking for information about individuals who flout America’s tax laws — especially those relating to international tax. Why not fill out a Form 211 and send it in to see if you can get 30% of what they’ll extract from Mr. Secretary of the Treasury? Sure, 6039G doesn’t specify any fines, but maybe they’ll lure him into the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and then they can just make up the fines themselves.
