Event Description

How to Handle the Compliance Requirements of Foreign Bank Account and Assets

Many of your clients may have opened foreign bank accounts to avoid IRS scrutiny. Since 2008, IRS has begun an aggressive enforcement program aimed at those with offshore accounts. Taxpayers, foreign bankers and foreign banks have been prosecuted. Even those avoiding prosecution can face penalties that exceed the value of their offshore accounts. Contemporaneously, the IRS has offered various voluntary disclosure programs. The latest initiative was announced on June 18, 2014 and offers various methods for taxpayers to correct omitted returns and income for foreign financial assets.

This class with expert speaker Robert McKenzie will alert you to IRS enforcement efforts and the compliance requirements for foreign bank accounts and assets. You will learn the best ways to assist noncompliant taxpayers based upon their individual facts and circumstances. You will also understand the filing requirements for reporting offshore income and assets for foreign bank accounts, foreign trusts, foreign corporations and foreign partnerships. Additionally, during the class you will learn all the appropriate methods for correcting prior failures to file required returns.

Training Highlights:

  • Become aware of tax filing requirement of taxpayers with foreign accounts.
  • Learn the filing requirement of foreign trusts and their beneficiaries.
  • Knowledge of the IRS current procedures for correction of foreign issues.
  • Review forms of procedures.
  • List of foreign compliance resources.
