Resolved Question:

What countries do not have extradition to the US where the issue is tax related
Submitted: 6 years ago.

Expert:  Bappelman replied 6 years ago.
Hello Guy,

The US and Costa Rica have a very extensive extradition treaty between them. If the offense that is the basis for the extradition request is punishable by more than 1 year in prison (any felony) then extradition is possible.

If the tax charges are felonies then yes, you could be extradited from Costa Rica to the US.

I hope this clears up your question. Good Luck!

Are there any other countries you are trying to find out about?

Thanks for the reply.

Bhutan, Iran, North Korea, and Taiwan do not have any extradition with the United States.

The United States maintains diplomatic relations, but does not have extradition treaties with the following countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Armenia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, the Central African Republic, Chad, the China (People's Republic of China), the Union of the Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic of the, Cote d' Ivoire, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia,France, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Indonesia, Jordan, Kosovo, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Libya, Madagascar, the Maldives, Mali, the Marshall Islands, Mauritania, the Federated States of Micronesia, Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nepal, Niger, Oman, Qatar, the Russian Federation, Rwanda, Samoa, São Tomé & Príncipe, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.

With diplomatic relations it would be possible to be extradited from one of the latter group of countries, but it would be a much longer process than if an actual treaty had been in effect.
