In what country can the citizens have foreign bank accounts

in what country can the citizens have foreign bank accounts and not have to report it to their country or pay taxes on it, like it used to be with swiss bank accounts. Is there such a country anymore? If so, I want to become a citizen there. If there are several countries that have safe banks and do not require their citizens to report their foriegn bank accounts, (not income, just large bank accounts), or just one, could you give me the list. There is no infomation on it online.....what a surprise..

My question is about a tax law: We are still married on paper.

My question is about a tax law: We are still married on paper. The divorce agreement is under finalization in New Jersey state. We owe taxes for 2014. We got seperated in May 2014. We always filed the tax return electronically as married couple filing jointly. She never had to sign the returns Id did electronically . My wife always gave that task to me. Now she is saying she will file that I did a fraud as she did not sign the joint return so she won't pay her share for the year 2014 to the IRS. Will I be charged for fraud? What are the consequences for this? Can she file Form 8857 for this purpuse? What should I expect as an outcome?

I am actually giving a talk tomorrow

Hi, I am actually giving a talk tomorrow for artists preparing taxes and I want to double check a couple of things. I think I have this correct, but the consequences could be bad if I don't. So, here goes: My understanding is that visual artists (along with writers and photographers) are not subject to the to uniform capitalization rules, so they are allowed to deduct supplies like paint and canvas in the year they are purchased, not as they are sold. Is that correct? A second question is whether an artist who donates he work can take the deduction (for materials alone, of course) on her Schedule C or she has to take the deduction on Schedule A. Thanks for your help.
