Scott Michel Quoted in The Wall Street Journal, IRS Suffers Setback in Identifying Secret Credit Suisse Accounts

April 12, 2012, The Wall Street Journal
Excerpt taken from the article.

A Swiss tribunal blocked the release of the name of a U.S. taxpayer holding a secret Credit Suisse account to the Internal Revenue Service. The April 5 decision was announced in a Tuesday press release, which noted the ruling cannot be appealed.

The decision appears broadly applicable to other Credit Suisse account holders, said Scott Michel, an attorney with Caplin & Drysdale in Washington. "It slows down the IRS's access to these names and throws a wrench in its strategy," he said, adding it may encourage holders of secret Credit Suisse accounts to delay disclosing them to the IRS.
