Dave represented several of the 1,500 UBS account holders with account balances in excess of $1 million disclosed to the IRS in 2008. He has kept up on the disclosure and compliance requirements as the IRS procedures have evolved.

Dave has given a series of interviews over the years explaining the development of the issues and the compliance requirements. Here are the links to these interviews. All interviews were by Michael Gray, CPA and produced by his always very interesting Financial Insider Weekly Program.
