As governments have stepped up their attempts to stem the flow of money and assets into tax havens, the IRS qualified intermediary (QI) program has come under intense scrutiny and undergone changes in the last year. Under the QI program, foreign financial institutions agree to collect information and taxes on behalf of the U.S. government related to interest and dividends paid by U.S. financial institutions into foreign accounts. Foreign financial institutions that do not join the QI program are required to forward documentation about each account holder to U.S. financial institutions.
