Cayman Islands Tax Haven.....may charge taxes!

Aha! Finally, the way to rid the world of offshore tax havens! Force them to collect....taxes!

The New York Times is reporting the notorious offshore tax haven, the Cayman Islands may be forced to collect taxes:

Caught in a vise of shrinking revenue and stubbornly high public spending, the Caymans averted a fiscal crisis this week by securing a $60 million overseas loan.

But the Foreign and Commonwealth office in Britain, which oversees the Caymans and can veto foreign lending requests, has delivered an ultimatum: The rest of the $284 million the Cayman government says it needs will not be forthcoming until this offshore financial center imposes spending cuts and considers some form of direct taxation on businesses here and its 57,000 residents.

Not a bad way to get rid of these global glorified tax loopholes where various multinationals stash their cash.
