2018 IRS OFFSHORE TAX AMNESTY PROGRAM
The attorneys at Thorn Law Group have helped hundreds of individual taxpayers and businesses with undisclosed offshore financial accounts come back into tax compliance under the 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2016 IRS offshore tax amnesty programs. In 2018, the IRS announced significant revisions to its fifth generation program, the 2016 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP). According to the IRS, the 2018 modifications are designed to encourage more taxpayers to come forward and report their previously undisclosed foreign bank accounts and assets.
The announced 2018 modifications to the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program were a surprise to the international tax community. This is because just months earlier, in March of 2018, the IRS announced that they would be closing the OVDP. In October of 2018, the IRS re-opened the program quietly, however with a few key changes. These changes will effect taxpayers in 2019 and beyond.
If you have unreported foreign financial accounts or have questions about IRS offshore reporting requirements, a tax lawyer in our Maryland office can help. Our legal team will carefully review your situation and identify the best path to bring your offshore accounts and assets into complete compliance with U.S. laws and regulations.
