J5 countries host data 'challenge,' closing in on enablers of tax evasion
"Combatting tax evasion across international borders requires partner nations to work together effectively and to understand the available data and tools. This is why partnerships such as the J5 and events like the challenge are important. These partnerships allow us to identify common targets and develop strategies for cases across borders."
-The Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue
The J5 is an international operational group formed to tackle enablers and promoters of international tax crime and is composed of tax experts from five countries: Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The J5 focuses on building international enforcement capacity by sharing information and intelligence, enhancing operational capability by piloting new approaches, and conducting joint operations / investigations.
Established in June 2018, the J5 hosted its inaugural meeting in Montreal where it developed tactical plans and identified opportunities to pursue cyber criminals and enablers of transnational tax crime.
