Credit Suisse is in talks with the U.S. Justice Department to pay as much as $1.6 billion to resolve an investigation into the bank's role in helping Americans evade U.S. taxes, a person familiar with the matter said. Prosecutors have also been pushing for the bank to plead guilty in connection with the probe, two people with knowledge of the talks said. A spokesman for Credit Suisse declined comment.
