Four more Swiss banks have cut deals with the U.S. Department of Justice to avoid possible prosecution for helping Americans evade taxes, the department said Thursday.The banks settled under a voluntary program the Justice Department launched in 2013 to allow Swiss banks to resolve potential criminal charges by disclosing cross-border activities that helped U.S. account holders conceal assets.Under the program, banks also must provide detailed information on the accounts of U.S. taxpayers under investigation.Banks that were already under criminal investigation, such as Julius Baer and HSBC's Swiss private bank, were excluded from the program.
