The IRS has seemingly limitless resources to investigate taxpayers accused of failing to pay their taxes. In recent years, the IRS has devoted substantial efforts to locating offshore account holders who haven't properly reported their assets each year. Whether the IRS has already discovered you are in violation of offshore compliance reporting requirements or not, taking a proactive approach ASAP can protect your rights and minimize the potential penalties you face due to unreported offshore assets.
Though we encourage cooperation with tax authorities when appropriate, we are vigilant in protecting our clients from self-incrimination while avoiding prosecution and criminal charges. Depending on the circumstances, solutions can often be found in the form of streamlined reporting procedures, penalty abatement, or payment plans of back tax obligations, including interest and penalties.
