The Offshore Tax Evasion Crackdown Spreads to Other Countries

5 Nations Join US In Tax Evasion Crackdown
The law has rankled many in the international community, reaching the long arm of theIRS into foreign countries. In effect, it orders foreign banks how to behave, forcingforeign institutions to do the IRS's dirty work. See Expats Call For FATCA ....

If the IRS determines you have income and you have not filed one, they can file a Ghost Return making tax assessments you may not even be aware of until years later. That may be after they have already attached your bank account or levied other assets.  The only way to stop this from happening is to file a tax return before they file one for you.

You can download our expat tax return questionnaire for 2011 here  (msword format) and send it to us for a fee quote subject to your approval.  Do not wait until it is too late.  Also, keep in mind, the statue of limitations which allows the IRS to assess taxes against you never runs out if you fail to file a tax return for any particular tax year.
