Fiscal Offenses As Extraditable Offenses
The majority of extradition treaties negotiated prior to 1970 do not include as extraditable offenses violations of law relating to taxes, customs, currency controls or the import and export of commodities. However, current practice of the United States is to draft extradition treaties to include such violations. Because other countries have shown a positive attitude towards the inclusion of these offenses, it can only be anticipated that the United States will continue to seek their inclusion in all future extradition treaties.
