Does anyone have a link or advice as to where to get a list of offshore tax havens that pose BSA concern?

I have tried to research online and the only lists I have come up with are pretty old.

Thank you!

There is not a single authoritative list. The World Bank publishes one, the OECD has one. They both list the United States as a tax haven.

If you want one that is a little more US-centric, there is a list of countries in Carl Levin's draft legislation regarding offshore tax havens. I'll provide a link later (once I go look it up again.)

Sorry, in 2011, Sen. Levin modified the bill to remove a listing of specific countries and to put in its place provisions to strengthen FATCA, which requires reporting from all countries.

If I can find a copy of his 2007 version, I'll post a link.

Some of my recommended "go to" sources are FinCEN (of course), FATF, OECD, and Transparency International for their corruption index.

Who needs an offshore tax haven when we have Nevada?
