Swiss Banks are Disclosing Detailed Information About U.S. Taxpayers With Undisclosed Swiss Accounts!Offshore Account Update
Posted in on April 2, 2014
Swiss banks are disclosing detailed information about U.S. taxpayers with undisclosed Swiss accounts. Also, recently closed Swiss accounts that any U.S. Taxpayer did not disclose will also be revealed in detail to the Department of Justice, (DOJ) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The disclosure of U.S. taxpayer undisclosed Swiss account information is occurring because some of the banks in Switzerland are taking part in the IRS’ Voluntary Disclosure Program for banks. The Swiss banks that are partaking in this Voluntary Disclosure Program are trying to avoid criminal prosecution and/or criminal investigation.
United States Taxpayers with offshore undisclosed bank accounts should enter into the IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program before their information is disclosed to the IRS. Disclosure to the IRS through the IRS Amnesty Program must occur before the U.S. Taxpayer is contacted by the IRS and/or the Department of Justice.
