Eide Bailly Online Webinar

This is an online webinar series, not an event at the Eide Bailly Mankato office.

111 S. 2nd St., Ste. 300

Are you a U.S. citizen, green card holder, or U.S. tax resident who owns assets outside the U.S.? If so, do you know and understand the complicated filing requirements of reporting these assets to the U.S. authorities and the applicable civil and criminal penalties for failure to disclose these assets? Offshore compliance remains a top priority for the IRS. Filing the appropriate forms correctly by their due date can be complicated and overwhelming. And filing international tax forms incorrectly or not at all can subject you to large civil and sometimes criminal penalties. This webinar will outline the many different foreign asset reporting requirements and their related penalties for failure to comply. If you have not been filing the necessary forms disclosing these assets, we will discuss some of the amnesty programs the IRS has available to assist taxpayers to come clean reporting these assets for prior years and going forward.

Learning Objectives:

Explain the FBAR obligations.
Discuss the US reporting obligations in foreign entities.
Define the US reporting obligations of being an owner or beneficiary of a foreign trust.
Identify Offshore Voluntary Disclosure requirements.
