IRS ANNOUNCES 2018 UPDATES TO IRS OFFSHORE VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE PROGRAM
The Internal Revenue Service has recently announced significant changes to its Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP). The OVDP was introduced in 2009 in an effort to combat offshore tax evasion. This amnesty program offers certain incentives for taxpayers to report their previously undisclosed foreign accounts to the IRS. The most recent modifications to the program were published in October of 2018.
The 2018 changes were designed to increase the number of participants in the OVDP. After a brief closure, the program was reinstated to continue to provide international tax payers with offshore bank accounts a method to come into compliance with U.S. Tax Law. Taxpayers seeking to take advantage of these procedures will now have to certify that their failure to report their offshore accounts and assets to the IRS was not deliberate in nature.
Under the 2018 program modifications, willful violators seeking to avoid criminal prosecution will be required to provide certain information to the IRS, including all account statements. Violators may be subject to higher penalties than in the past and will have to pay their offshore penalties when they apply to the OVDP.
Taxpayers seeking to take advantage of the OVDP incentives should consult with an experienced New Jersey IRS voluntary disclosure lawyer at Thorn Law Group to identify all options that may be available to resolve their offshore account issues.
