 IRS Voluntary Disclosure

IRS Offshore/Voluntary Disclosure: Even though OVDP has ended, if you are willful, you still have options. Our Tax Lawyers represent clients worldwide in all aspects of the traditional IRM (Internal Revenue Manual) Voluntary Disclosure Practice. The program allows you to disclose domestic or and/or foreign income. As a Board Certified Tax Specialist Law Firm, we diligently work to protect our clients, while developing cost-effective tax and penalty reduction strategies.


IRM Voluntary Disclosure Practice Basics

 Streamlined Disclosure

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 eliminating IRS Foreign Money penalties for FBAR & FATCA non-compliance under approved IRS Streamlined Offshore Disclosure guidelines, using Streamlined Domestic or Streamlined Foreign Procedures.

Streamlined Domestic  vs. Streamlined Foreign

 Reasonable Cause

IRS Reasonable Cause Statement: Depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding your nondisclosure, our Tax Lawyers may recommend Reasonable Cause as a viable, safe alternative to either IRS Voluntary Disclosure or the Streamlined Program. Reasonable Cause is a fact specific submission, which is based on each applicant's facts & circumstances. Reasonable Cause may eliminate various international, foreign and offshore penalties.
