The agreement is a Model 1 agreement, meaning that Israeli financial institutions will will report information about U.S. customers’ accounts to the Israeli tax authorities, who will then send that information to the IRS. The news comes only a day after the indictment of a former senior vice president of an Israeli bank, widely believed to be Bank Mizrahi, for conspiring to conceal the existence of undeclared accounts owned and controlled by U.S. customers in Israel.
