Tax avoidance is an area rife with scams and "advice" likely to land you in hot water.

Do take all reasonable deductions. Look into deferred compensation plans.

But offshore stuff? Very likely to be a scam. See http://www.quatloos.com/taxscams/blackhol.htm for more.

If you still want to look into this, see http://www.offshorebusiness.com/ for more info -- but be sure to check out their "Hall of Shame" to see who you could be dealing with.
