Strong Advocacy And Counsel In International Tax Law Matters

In recent years the federal government has devoted increasing resources to identifying and taxing offshore assets held by U.S. citizens, residents and green card holders. In our current environment, it is essential for taxpayers with offshore assets to take careful steps to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Foreign nationals living in the United States and individuals with dual citizenship also face unique tax challenges.

Reporting Foreign Accounts And Assets

Many taxpayers fail to realize that both the IRS and the Department of Treasury have requirements for properly reporting foreign accounts and assets. These are separate reports and require the use of specific forms to comply with the law.

Even if you have complied with one side of the reporting requirements, failure to properly report the other piece can result in serious penalties. If you have a foreign bank account or a business with international operations or own property or investments outside of the U.S., seek the advice of an experienced lawyer who is well-versed in the nuanced requirements of tax laws.
