Golding & Golding, APLC: We are a team of International Tax Lawyers and Enrolled Agents. We focus our entire Tax Law Practice on IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure, including the traditional Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP), Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures, FBAR Penalty Reduction, and FATCA Reporting for individuals.
What We Do
Flat-Fee, Full-Service: Our International Tax Attorneys represent hundreds of Taxpayers annually in over 60 different countries around the world in IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure. We have developed a unique Tax Law Firm that is devoted entirely to representing clients in IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure. We work with you every step of the way!
Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP): Our International Tax Lawyers represent clients with IRS OVDP (Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program) submissions. We diligently work to protect our clients, while developing cost-effective tax & penalty reduction strategies for Foreign Income, Assets, Real Estate and Investments worldwide.
Streamlined Offshore Disclosure: If you are Non-Willful or have Reasonable Cause, you may be able to reduce or avoid Offshore Disclosure Penalties for FBAR or FATCA non-compliance. Our International Tax Lawyers evaluate the facts and circumstances of your case, including penalty reduction strategies, and work with you every step of the way!
IRS Reasonable Cause Statement: Depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding your nondisclosure, reasonable cause may be a viable alternative to either OVDP or the streamlined program. Reasonable cause is a fact specific submission, in which you request a penalty waiver in lieu of the OVDP or Streamlined Domestic Penalty.
We Can Help You!
Offshore Disclosure: We safely bring Taxpayers from around the world into IRS Tax Compliance. We work together to evaluate and analyze your case, including assessing whether you are willful or non-willful, the pros and cons of entering OVDP, Streamlined, or Reasonable Cause, and whether you may have Form 8938, 3520, 5471, 8621, PFIC or other Requirements.
Reduced Fee Initial Consultation
We understand that many firms offer a “Free” Initial Consultation, with the word being used loosely.
Oftentimes, these firms use these free consultations to bait you in, only to try to scare you (5 Years Prison) or sell you (Better Act Now!). This is not how Golding & Golding, A PLC operates.
When you are ready to contact our firm, we will schedule a reduced fee consultation to discuss the facts of your case in more detail and provide you a firm understanding of the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and what your options are for compliance.
