Course Description

Do you have banking accounts, mutual funds, and other financial assets outside the US?

Are you worried about whether you need to report them to the IRS?

The answer is - you might! And the penalties are stiff if you are required to and don’t.

Foreign Asset Disclosure is an extremely important part of tax resolution.

For tax advisers serving U.S. taxpayers with offshore interests, the information reporting obligations are often as complex as the actual tax calculations. Determining whether a taxpayer has to report offshore holdings often depends on recognizing the U.S. tax law classification of the asset and identifying relevant thresholds that require disclosure. Further complicating matters is that different forms carry different reporting thresholds, even for the same asset holding.

The IRS uses information reporting to determine potential tax non-compliance due to either sheltering or nondisclosure. The U.S. is a signatory to agreements with numerous countries to facilitate tax and asset disclosures among its citizens. The IRS will reconcile various information reporting filings with other asset disclosures.

In this online CPE webinar, we will cover the rules surrounding disclosing foreign assets, when they should be reported, and who needs to file. We will go through the various forms associated with Foreign Asset Disclosure and break down the obligations and details surrounding each form.

Key topics covered in this online CPE webinar:

  • Overview of U.S. information reporting requirements for foreign assets.
  • Required disclosures for assets and overlap in reporting.
  • Forms used for reporting foreign assets.
  • Penalties for not reporting foreign asset information.
