We understand that it can be stressful to be behind on your US taxes, but we have particular expertise in helping US expats get caught up using the Streamlined Filing Procedures and the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP).
For those utilizing the Streamlined Filing Procedures to get caught up, the IRS requires 3 delinquent years of Federal Tax Returns and the past 6 years of FBARs to be filed. As of June 2014, the IRS has waived all late filing and FBAR penalties for those whose lack of filing was non-willful.
In addition, we can help you prepare the tax filings for OVDP. This program is for individuals who may be at risk of criminal prosecution (or want to avoid this risk) for failing to file or report their assets overseas. If you enroll in OVDP to get caught up on your taxes, you will need to file 6-8 years of back tax returns and FBARs. We strongly recommend working with an attorney if you choose to utilize the OVDP and we can recommend an attorney we have worked closely with in the past to advise you.
