Streamlined Offshore Lawyer Fees: The IRS developed the Streamlined Offshore program in 2014. Streamlined OffshoreLawyer Fees refers to Attorney Fees for the Streamlined Procedures. The program is used for non-willful applicants to disclose previously unreported U.S. and offshore accounts, assets, investments and income. The program is in response to increased aggressive IRS enforcement of foreign accounts compliance. The statute of limitations for most of these cases are 6-years. A streamlined offshore submission may get audited, and submissions can be rejected. At Golding & Golding, we specialize exclusively in Streamlined and Offshore Voluntary Disclosure.
We developed a highly-successful, flat-fee client-representation model for both legal and tax representation in Streamlined cases.
Golding & Golding use this model to protect clients from the fees associated with attorneys who use outside CPAs — which increases the risk of high-stakes audits.
Streamlined Offshore Lawyer Fees
Each streamlined filing case is unique. Streamlined Filing Lawyer fees will vary based on each case. At Golding & Golding our experienced Streamlined Filing Lawyers always charge a flat-fee for full-service representation. The fee includes:
- Tax Preparation
- Legal representation
- Examination Protection*
*Unlike other attorneys, we do not charge extra for audits or examinations. We stand by our submissions, and if a client is audited for their submission, we represent our clients for no additional fee.
**While not all applicants will be audited, Streamlined Audits and FBAR audits are on the rise.
