Undisclosed Offshore Accounts and Voluntary Disclosures
“When my sister and I found out that our father had left each of us money in a Swiss bank account, we were thrilled, but we had no idea that we were required to report these accounts and any income from them to the IRS. No one at the bank told us about this requirement and we had no experience dealing with such things. We had begun to hear reports in the news about the Government looking into offshore assets and became concerned, so my sister did a little research and contacted Thorn Law Group. I’m glad she did. The attorneys at Thorn Law Group were so knowledgeable about the way the IRS Criminal Investigation Division works. They helped put our minds at ease and walked each of us through the whole Voluntary Disclosure process. With the help of Thorn Law Group we were able to get back into compliance and were able to avoid criminal prosecution.”

International Litigation and Reporting Requirements
“Our company derives a substantial portion of its revenue from the import and export of parts and finished products. Unfortunately, our operations expanded faster than our ability to keep up with all the reporting that comes along with doing business overseas. We were falling behind and knew that we needed help, but didn’t know where to turn; that’s when I found Thorn Law Group’s website. He really knew the law, but just as important, he showed that he really cared about helping us manage our growing business. I have grown to trust Mr. Thorn with our reporting requirements, his expertise and advocacy really saved us.”

Employment Tax Issues and IRS Audits
“I own and manage a small debt management company. When our in-house accountant accepted a position with another firm, he left behind a mess of unreported payroll taxes and other potential tax penalty issues that we only discovered once our new accountant started taking inventory of the books. He suggested that we contact Thorn Law Group. The attorneys at Thorn got a handle on the situation immediately. They helped us file our returns, set up a payment plan with the IRS and negotiate reduced penalties with the Revenue Agent. Their decisive action enabled us to keep any penalties and interest to a manageable level, and we were able to overcome what could have ended up being a very costly and time-consuming interruption to our business with minimum hassle.”

IRS Office of Professional Responsibility
“During my tenure as a Senior Enforcement Attorney with the Office of Professional Responsibility, I had the pleasure of working with Kevin Thorn over a period of several years. I found him to be among the most talented and professional colleagues I had ever met in the course of my Government career. Kevin is extremely well-versed in tax law. He is a skilled negotiator and his analysis of complex legal issues is always spot-on. Most importantly, he brings a passion and a sense of commitment to his work that is no doubt serving him well in his private practice. I would recommend Thorn Law Group without hesitation to anyone in need of representation in tax or financial matters.”

Helped Us Ensure Our Complex Internal Accounts are in Compliance
Kevin Thorn, Managing Partner of Thorn Law Group, is an excellent adviser. My family and I are US citizens living in Europe and the US. Mr. Thorn helped us to understand our opportunities for international investments and estate planning issues so that my siblings and I may continue to further the growth of our businesses, to care for our aging parents and provide for our children. Mr. Thorn and his team were sensitive to our family’s needs and helped us identify and understand our options and potential risks associated with US and international activity. They also helped us to ensure our complex structure of international accounts and asset holdings are in compliance with US tax and disclosure laws through the IRS offshore voluntary disclosure program. I highly recommend Kevin Thorn and the dedicated attorneys at Thorn Law Group.

Kevin Thorn and his team resolved my case
Kevin E. Thorn and the tax attorneys at Thorn Law Group are exceptional. When I came to them, I had just received a letter from the Department of Justice concerning an undisclosed bank account at a Swiss bank. I thought I was going to go to jail and lose everything I had worked for just because my family and my business are international. Mr. Thorn’s knowledge of the tax laws and his skills in presenting my situation to the IRS and Department of Justice proved superior! Mr. Thorn proved to be a compassionate attorney when listening to me and addressing my concerns, as well as a passionate advocate when fighting for me with the government. The whole process was much less painful than I expected thanks to his expert advocacy. I can sleep at night now that Kevin Thorn and his team have resolved my case. I highly recommend Kevin Thorn to anyone with issues before the IRS or department of Justice.
