Many taxpayers fail to report foreign accounts inadvertently. Sometimes, taxpayers misunderstand the $10,000 threshold for disclosing offshore accounts and believe the limit applies to each account individually. Other times, taxpayers may accidentally underreport their account values because they are reviewing balances in foreign denominations. Then there are times when signature authorities over an account neglect to file an FBAR completely because they are under the misconception that only actual account owners need to file.
We fully understand just how easily vital account details can be overlooked. When you have our IRS lawyers on your side, you can rest assured your reports will be filed accurately and any unwarranted IRS charges will be contested.
