IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program
Trust Legal Tax Defense to Resolve all your Tax issues with IRS
In the past few years, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has come up with strict measures to ensure that all United States Citizens with offshore accounts pay taxes. This has resulted due to a high number of people with foreign accounts who fail to remit their taxes. Note that if you are caught, the IRS has the right to prosecute you because it is a crime to fail to pay the taxes. There are also fines involved when you are entered into the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program. If you find yourself into this problem, there is no need for you to worry. At Legal Tax Defense, our highly qualified tax attorneys can offer the right solutions and ensure you are not prosecuted.
Changes in the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program
The IRS has made several changes in the program to help collect more taxes from citizens with offshore accounts. Some of the changes you should know include:
- Increase in penalties
- Offer benefits for those who disclose their offshore account details
- The ability to close the program or increase penalties at any time
The voluntary disclosure program is aimed at allowing people with foreign accounts to disclose their information. This benefits the IRS since most of the cases are resolved without wasting time or resources.
What happens if you violate the terms set by the IRS?
If the IRS detects that you have violated the laid down regulations. There are various penalties you can face. You can be prosecuted as a fraudster, which attracts huge penalties. Some of the violations you can be punished for include:
- Failure to pay tax
- Filing incorrect tax return
- Not filing an income tax return
