Course Description


For much of the past decade, the Internal Revenue Service has focused significant attention on offshore bank accounts and the obligation of U.S. taxpayers to report such accounts on the FBAR (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) form. The FBAR rules require taxpayers to annually report whether they have a financial interest in or signature or other authority over, foreign bank accounts and impose substantial civil and criminal penalties for failing to do so. 

In addition, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) now requires individuals and certain entities to annually disclose specified foreign financial assets on Form 8938. The information reporting requirements of FATCA also require foreign banks and financial institutions to annually disclose to the IRS information about their U.S. customers. The IRS now has access to far more information regarding the offshore activities of U.S. taxpayers than ever, and non-compliant U.S. taxpayers face significant risks. We will cover other International Tax Reporting Issues

I've been to webinars where the objectives were not really clear but this one was really impressive. Jason did a really great job and provided us with scenarios and, helped me be engaged in the training even if the topic was boring. He made the topic seem very interesting for the listeners.


Well prepared and well presented webinar on a very complex area of tax, Multinational. Enjoyed every moment of presentation. Appreciate relevant poll questions which were also part of the handouts for future reference. I look forward to additional presentations from Jason and looking into some of the archives available.


This was a very welcoming course - I would like to have more of these international seminars - especially in our world today. There are more cases that arise today for worldwide income and investments - the 1-hour course was enough time to get very good information.


International tax return is tricky and this webinar provided clarity on who, when, and what is required to be reported. Thanks


Seminar provided a very good intro to the taxation of individuals with foreign income and non u.s. individuals with u.s. income.


Excellent presentation with well-organized content. Really liked the practical information on all the different forms and their filing requirements.
