Bank Leumi, a major Israeli international bank, admitted that it conspired to assist US taxpayers to prepare and present false tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by hiding income and assets in offshore bank accounts in Israel and elsewhere around the world. The criminal conduct spanned over a 10 year period and included an array of services and products designed to keep US taxpayer accounts concealed at Bank Leumi Group’s locations in Israel, Switzerland, Luxembourg and the US. The bank agreed to pay a total of $270 million in fines and penalties and to cease to provide banking and investment services for all accounts held by US taxpayers. DOJ
