American taxpayers with offshore accounts of more than $10,000 are required by law to declare those holdings to the IRS. In recent years, the tax-collection agency has become more aggressive in its efforts to identify offenders, and so far, through partial amnesty programs, 30,000 taxpayers have stepped up, paying $2.7 million in taxes, interest, and penalties. All told, the IRS has collected approximately 50% of the value of many of these accounts.

It's good to see the duo back in action. I have one point though. The Occupy Wall Street group and most liberals I work with are not in the same crowd. OWS does not understand the financial world and they surely don't like it either. A lot of those folks want to see what we do come to an end. That is not the kind of people who cheer us on as we go into work.
