Are You Aware of the
Recent Reporting Requirements for
Offshore Assets and Accounts?
(and What You Can Do If These Have Gone Unreported?)
Recently, the IRS has made significant changes to programs that allow taxpayers to come into compliance with their unreported and undisclosed offshore assets and accounts. It’s important as estate and tax planners that you are on top of the reporting requirements and these new delinquent submission options, to provide the best possible planning and recommendations for your clients.
Please join us and nationally renowned estate and tax planning attorneys, Neda Barkhordar and Bruce Givner, for a special 2-part program entitled, “Reporting Requirements for Foreign Assets & Transactions.”
On Part 1, entitled, “Everything You Should Know Regarding the FBAR and Offshore Asset Voluntary Disclosure Alternatives”, Neda will cover in 90-minutes:
- When a taxpayer must file a Foreign Bank Account Report (“FBAR”), what requirements are needed to meet eligibility, penalties for failure to disclose and what documents need to be submitted.
- The different reporting alternatives available and requirements for each program.
- How to decide which alternative is best for your clients with the use of examples, including how to best determine if your client meets the “non-willful” standard to be eligible for the Streamlined Compliance Submission.
- Procedures for filing delinquent FBAR and International Information Returns.
- Who and where to contact within the IRS for your clients pertaining to FBAR and Offshore Voluntary Disclosures.
- And much more!
On Part 2, entitled, “Read Them and Weep!!! The Top IRS Foreign Information Returns (Other Than FBARs and FATCA)”, Bruce will cover in 90-minutes:
- Form 3520 – Needed, for example, when a client receives a gift of more than $100,000 from an NRS
