ZURICH/MIAMI, July 8 (Reuters) - A judge ordered the U.S. government to say whether it was prepared to shut Swiss bank UBS AG (UBSN.VX) (UBS.N) in the United States as part of a battle to learn the identity of 52,000 secret accounts suspected of being used by Americans to avoid taxes.

U.S. District Judge Alan Gold, set to preside over a hearing Monday of a suit seeking to force UBS to provide the information, asked specifically Wednesday about "receivership and/or seizure of UBS' assets within the United States."

Gold said such remedies might be requested of the court if UBS failed to comply, or was prevented from complying by the Swiss government. He gave the U.S. Justice Department until noon (1600 GMT) on Sunday to respond.

California has been burning through its cash without a budget agreement and is issuing IOUs for tax refunds. The legislature is being urged to consider taxing marijuana to help raise revenues.

日本でも、加藤税調時代に法人課税の抜本見直し案の中でフリンジベネフィット課税論が出たことがありますが、医療保険の雇用者負担分に課税という議論はなかったですね。
