Course Description

Course Description

Taxpayers have a legal duty to comply with U.S. Tax Laws. If you owe the IRS money, it is usually only a matter of time before they come to collect. Whether you failed to file, did not disclose all of your income, or for any other reason, getting in touch with them before they come after you is always the better scenario. To make it easier, the IRS and many states have a program called Voluntary Disclosure, wherein an individual or organization can come forward and volunteer information before the situation worsens.

The IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program allows taxpayers to safely disclose their offshore accounts, assets, income, and investments to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). "Voluntary Compliance" is the cornerstone of our tax system. lt has estimated that over 85% of taxpayers comply with their Tax Obligations. While most taxpayers voluntarily comply, some fail to do so. IRS has a wide variety of civil and criminal sanctions that may be imposed on non-compliant taxpayers. Failure to voluntarily comply may result in imprisonment, fines, and penalties.

A Voluntary Disclosure may be a means to resolve your client's non-compliance and limit exposure to criminal prosecution.
