EXPERIENCED & AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION FOR TAXPAYERS WHO HOLD FOREIGN ACCOUNTS OR CONDUCT BUSINESS IN GERMANY
Led by Managing Partner Kevin E. Thorn, the Germany tax lawyers at Thorn Law Group represent domestic and international clients who hold foreign accounts, foreign assets or conduct business transactions in Germany and have tax obligations to the United States.

WE WORK TO PROTECT YOUR ASSETS WHILE BRINGING YOUR OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS INTO COMPLIANCE
If you are responsible for paying U.S. taxes and have bank accounts, assets or earn income in Germany, you may be under close watch by the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS has increased its efforts to crack down on individuals and businesses with offshore investments and earnings. You may not even realize it, but at this very moment, your accounts and holdings may be under government surveillance.
What does this mean for you?
Under the IRS’ Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts Program (FBAR), if the aggregate value of your offshore accounts or those for which you have signature authority over exceed $10,000 at any point during the calendar year, you are required to disclose these accounts and report your earnings to the U.S. government.
If you fail to file an FBAR, you may be at risk for serious penalties. You may be liable to pay thousands – if not millions – to the U.S. government in fines and fees. Even worse, you may be criminally prosecuted.
How we can help
Facing an IRS investigation can be extremely frightening – especially when you had no idea the government was even looking into your offshore investments or income. Many taxpayers are not even aware of the complex rules associated with foreign account and asset reporting and unknowingly fail to file the appropriate forms or make honest mistakes in their paperwork. When so much is at stake, it’s important to seek legal representation from someone who has both in-depth experience and a track record of success in handling these types of cases.
My name is Kevin E. Thorn. As Managing Partner of Thorn Law Group, I have dedicated my practice to helping taxpayers avoid the life-changing penalties that often follow IRS investigations. Before opening my firm, I was an attorney for the IRS and the United States Tax Court. I spent years immersed the U.S. government’s most complicated tax laws, and now, I bring that unique advantage to my clients’ cases.
Armed with years of IRS inside knowledge, my team and I will thoroughly review your case and find the most effective solution to help you save money and avoid both civil and criminal penalties.
