Brazil Encouraging Asset Repatriation

What is the latest news about Brazil's repatriation law?

The government hopes that Brazilian residents will voluntarily disclose both tangible and intangible assets that were either remitted or maintained abroad as well as those that were repatriated.

Owing the IRS Can Make You Lose Your Passport

American taxpayers now have another “incentive” to pay off their tax debt. In addition to its power to levy bank accounts and accounts receivables, garnish wages and file liens on properties, the Government can take away passports from delinquent taxpayers.
