President Obama unveiled a plan in 2009 that he said would restore some fairness to the US tax code.
This plan would require overseas banks to issue 1099 forms to US citizens. And more importantly: make the foreign income reportable and taxable.
Obama says his proposal removes tax incentives for US companies to ship their jobs overseas. He also wants to hire 800 full time IRS agents to help enforce these regulations.
