The rich are taking extra steps to leave the control aspects to others who they trust. The arm of the law is very reaching. Taxes are on a worldwide basis. You can run but you can’t hide. Yet the law does not prevent anyone to reposition their assets and to manage their income taxes to their best advantage. Having a foreign asset protection trust is not illegal. They merely want to know if you have such a structure by filling in the box on your tax return with a simple yes, and if you have positively a foreign structure, the mere reporting does not trigger an examination of your records. It’s perfectly legal. The rich hide their assets by repositioning.
