HELPING ANNAPOLIS RESIDENTS WITH FOREIGN BANK ACCOUNTS COME INTO COMPLIANCE WITH IRS REGULATIONS
The FATCA requires taxpayers who hold foreign financial assets with an aggregate value exceeding $50,000 to disclose those assets on Form 8938. If you are a U.S. Citizen, legal permanent resident, foreign national, long-term green card holder or expatriate, you are required to file, according to FATCA regulations.
Failure to properly report your financial assets could result in a $10,000 penalty. Additionally, any underpayments associated with the non-disclosed assets will be subject to a 40% penalty. Should the IRS believe that your failure to properly disclose your assets was by choice, they could launch a criminal investigation, which can result in seizures and prison time. This is a very real possibility and one not to be taken lightly, which is a key reason why you should consult with an Annapolis tax attorney as quickly as possible.
