Posted in Press Releases on August 10, 2009 | Share

Thorn Law Group is counseling U.S. taxpayers on how to disclose their foreign accounts so as to, hopefully, avoid prosecution.

Washington, DC (Issues Wire / PRWEB) August 10, 2009 -- DC boutique law firm, Thorn Law Group, specializes in assisting clients deal with the IRS regarding their undisclosed accounts at UBS and other foreign banks.

In a very public campaign, the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Department of Justice have been aggressively pursuing taxpayers they believe are hiding income in offshore bank accounts in an effort to avoid paying income tax.

In the most widely publicized of these investigations - the IRS investigation into accounts with Swiss banking giant UBS AG, the U.S. and Swiss governments have announced a settlement deal resolving the issues surrounding the release by UBS AG of the names of account holders to the IRS. The terms of settlement are not yet known, but they are likely to include the handing over of some UBS client data to the IRS. Of course, UBS AG is not the only foreign bank the IRS is investigating.

Thorn Law Group, located at https://www.thorntaxlaw.com, is counseling U.S. taxpayers on how to disclose their foreign accounts so as to, hopefully, avoid prosecution. For most taxpayers, Kevin E. Thorn, Managing Partner of Thorn Law Group advises participation in the IRS offshore account voluntary disclosure initiative.

For taxpayers who do not qualify for the initiative, or who have other concerns, Thorn Law Group counsels on alternative courses of action.
