IRS pursues card information


The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Federal courts in Oklahoma and several other states have authorized the Internal Revenue Service to gather information from financial institutions about people who have used certain credit or debit cards in Norway.

The US Department of Justice said Tuesday that three other requests are pending.

The United States is trying to identify people who used specific cards issued by certain US financial institutions so that Norway can determine if those people have complied with Norwegian tax laws. A total of 18 US institutions have been identified.
