But over the years he became very creative in accounting for his clients, according to the US Department of Justice. Under his leadership, one hundred million dollars were to be hidden from the tax authorities. He was extradited to the United States on Sunday.
The US Attorney’s Office states that B created “advanced international tax evasion schemes” for his clients. In these arrangements, the income of famous Dutch deejays such as Tiesto and Afrojack, who lived in the United States, was channeled through a company in Cyprus. Income tax has been paid on that island, but US tax authorities also want to see payments on that income.
Conspiracy against the tax authorities
After American justice issued an extradition request, “B” remained in an Italian prison for the past few months. There he waited for his delivery, which took place last Sunday. After arriving in the United States, the tax specialist was brought before the White Plains City Court in New York State.
The Attorney General believes that B.’s tax structures amount to a “conspiracy against the American state.” The conspiracy is said to be aimed at defrauding US tax authorities. In addition, Dutch is accused of helping to incorrectly complete five tax returns.

B. He himself says he did nothing wrong. With his tax structures, he wanted to prevent double taxation on his clients’ income, he previously told The New York Times F.D.

B. faces five years in prison on the conspiracy charge, and three years in prison on each count of assisting in the incorrect completion of a tax return. It may take years before the case reaches trial. Furthermore, the Dutch justice system has also been targeting tax professionals for years; The case against B. in the Netherlands, for alleged tax evasion, is still ongoing.
