Streamlined Offshore Filing Lawyer Fees: If you found this page, you are in luck. We are going to help you cut through the B.S., and summarize how Streamlined Filing Lawyer Offshore tax and legal representation fees work with experienced legal counsel.

Our team of Streamlined Filing Lawyers have developed a highly-effective representation fee model that is used by other experienced tax-specialist tax and law firms across the globe.

Our attorneys have been featured in Forbes, LexBlog, HG, NOLO, and more.

Streamlined Fees: How do Experienced Attorneys Charge?

A streamlined submission is both a tax and legal submission.

The tax and legal portions of a Streamlined Offshore Filing should always be handled in-house by the Attorney and their team.

How do Attorneys Charge?

Each client has a unique story, with their own specific facts and circumstances.

No two streamlined cases are the same, and fees should be representative of that specific client’s case.

Tax and Legal Fees should only be determined after the Attorney has spoken in detail with the client — and not based on some prefabricated fee.

Flat-Fee, Full-Service (Tax and Legal)

At Golding & Golding our experienced Streamlined Filing Lawyers always charge a flat-fee for full-service representation.  We have successfully represented clients in more than 1,000 Streamlined Submission Disclosures.

The fee includes:

  • Strategy Development
  • Ongoing Communications
  • Tax Preparation
  • Legal representation
  • IRS follow-up
  • Client follow-up communications (post-submission)
  • 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

Required Tax Credentials & Experience for Streamlined Filing Cases

Experienced Streamlined Filing attorneys in this field will have the following credentials/experience:

  • 20-years experience as a practicing attorney
  • Extensive litigation, high-stakes audit and trial experience
  • Board Certified Tax Law Specialist credential
  • Master’s of Tax Law (LL.M.)
  • Dually Licensed as an EA (Enrolled Agent) or CPA

Watch out for Inexperienced Streamlined Counsel Scammers

Some other less-experienced firms have tried to copy our model, but failed miserably. 

Usually, this is because they have neither the experience nor the background they market themselves to have — and oftentimes leave a client in a worse position than when the matter started.

They will manipulate their past experience in an entry-level, non-legal role at the IRS, and/or some basic accounting, bookkeeping, or law clerk experience — and make it sound like they are FATCA and FBAR “experts.”

Sooner or later, these cases end-up on our doorstep.

Here are two examples of many cases we have received from other counsel across the nation: (Case 1) and (Case 2).
