DC tax attorney Kevin Thorn of Thorn Law Group reminds you that it is not illegal to have foreign bank accounts. Many of our clients at Thorn Law Group have offshore accounts for various legitimate reasons. They may have inherited the funds from relatives, or they might be hedging their investments in foreign currencies as a part of an investment strategy. Regardless of the reason, it is a crime to hold these offshore accounts without disclosing them to the government. Taxpayers who hold offshore accounts must disclose the existence of such accounts, and report any income derived from them to the Internal Revenue Service. An experienced lawyer can help any taxpayer who wishes to claim an undisclosed offshore account without facing harsh penalties or criminal prosecution. Our firm is experienced helping taxpayers navigate the intricacies of the IRS's Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program for Undisclosed Offshore Accounts. Voluntary Disclosures offer a great opportunity for taxpayers to avoid potential criminal prosecution.
