Washington DC International Tax Attorney
United States-based companies transacting business overseas face many challenges in terms of tax compliance. These entities are subject to the local taxing authorities in the host jurisdiction and must still comply with U.S. tax laws. While certain countries have entered into tax treaties with the United States that enable businesses to avoid the pitfall of “double taxation,” others have not. As the global marketplace continues to expand, double taxation has the potential to become even more problematic for U.S. businesses. Additionally, increased collaboration inspired by FATCA between the United States and foreign governments has led to stepped up enforcement efforts in such areas as anti-money laundering, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and foreign bank account reporting.
The Internal Revenue Service has also renewed its efforts to pursue tax law violations arising out of foreign activities and offshore bank accounts. It is aggressively pursuing international tax violations through the use of both civil audits and criminal investigations and prosecutions. The IRS has announced specific plans to focus on combating tax fraud and tax evasion by auditing U.S. taxpayers who use foreign accounts and offshore business entities in ways the IRS deems abusive or misleading. To assist in these efforts, the IRS and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have expanded their programs of information sharing and cooperation with nations, banks and financial institutions around the world.
