Fixing International Non-Compliance

Voluntary Disclosure Programs with Reduced Penalties Exist

Taxpayers who are non-compliant with reporting their foreign income and/or assets have programs available to come forward and disclose their non-compliance with a reduced penalty structure and limited look-back period.  We will compare and contrast these programs as well as how to properly construct a disclosure package.  We will look at case studies to bring a real-life perspective to these programs and the taxpayers using them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrate proper interview techniques to determine the extent of taxpayer non-compliance.
  • Understand the Delinquent FBAR and International Information Return Submission Procedures and when a taxpayer can use them.
  • Understand the Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures and when a taxpayer can use them.
  • Describe the concept of “willfulness” in international tax non-compliance and its implications.
  • Demonstrate the ability to correctly construct a disclosure package, including the reasonable cause statement or Streamlined narrative.

Your registration includes 2 IRS CE as well as:

  • Downloadable course manual and implementation tools as appropriate. These materials are available for download when you log into the webinar.
  • The opportunity to listen to the optional presenter and the other members of the Compass Tax Educators instructional team during the optional question-and-answer session held during the original recording.
