Yovanovitch explained that under the agreement, the United States will receive at the state level information from the Ukrainian side about the administration of income tax by U.S. citizens and companies in which they own stakes.

The bilateral cooperation in the field of administration of income and taxes is a two-way street, the ambassador said noting that the U.S. is also willing to share the relevant data with the Ukrainian authorities.
