 IRS Streamlined

Streamlined Offshore Disclosure: Our International Tax Lawyers represent clients worldwide with IRS Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures. The Streamlined Programs are designed to assist clients who are non-willful with reducing or exempting their IRS Offshore penalties for FBAR & FATCA non-compliance under approved IRS Streamlined guidelines.

Streamlined Domestic  vs. Streamlined Foreign

 Reasonable Cause

IRS Reasonable Cause Statement: Depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding your nondisclosure, our International Tax Lawyers may recommend Reasonable Cause FBAR as a viable alternative to either OVDP or the streamlined program. Reasonable cause is a fact specific submission based on each applicant's facts & circumstances, which may eliminate penalties.
