6) Marshall Langer's article on the IRS's proposed interest reporting regulations.

International Tax Expert Marshall J. Langer argues that proposed IRS regulations requiring U.S. banks to report interest payments to nonresident aliens could cause a significant outflow of funds from U.S. financial markets.  Link below:

7) IRS Regulation Comments Needed

Contact the IRS and SAY NO to proposed IRS regulation on requiring US financial institutions to report interest income paid to foreign account holders. This new regulation would be devastating to the US economy since it will force a large amount of foreign investment to move somewhere else.

[Please Note:  Please email CFP your statement to the IRS and we will post selected comments.]
