The home of two of the largest, and emptiest, trading floors in the world, Connecticut, is going after any residents on UBS's now infamous list who weren't able to obtain tax favorable citizenship elsewhere and flee to higher ground. If you thought they were going to do this the easy way and use people with immunity from prosecution to connect the dots for them, think again.
"UBS is naming names of tax evaders, and we have reason to believe Connecticut citizens are among them," Blumenthal said on Thursday. "We will vigorously pursue them for unpaid taxes, including anyone who comes forward under the federal tax amnesty program."
The old adage is true- old habits die hard.
