Stopping offshore tax evasion and bringing individuals back into the tax system has been a top priority of the Internal Revenue Service for several years. Many nonresidents with foreign bank and financial accounts, and even some U.S. residents who have not willfully failed to comply, have been swept up by the IRS’s compliance initiatives, and the U.S. government continues to obtain information from foreign governments and financial institutions, and other sources. The IRS has indicated that it may end some of its voluntary disclosure programs in the near future. This seminar will discuss income tax and information reporting requirements with respect to foreign bank accounts, the IRS’s current civil and criminal voluntary disclosure programs, the government’s prosecution of foreign account matters, and dealing with subpoenas and other inquiries.
Speakers: James Bandoblu, Jr., Jennifer Boll, Timothy Hoover, and Michelle Merola
