IRS Cracking Down on Foreign Vessels in Outer Continental Shelf

In late 2009, officials with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began to examine the issue of foreign vessels operating on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) in the Gulf of Mexico. The agency was concerned that these vessels were registering under foreign flags in an attempt to avoid paying the required taxes. After the tragic explosion that killed 11 people aboard the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling platform, the IRS has intensified their efforts at tracking and investigating those it believes owe back taxes.
