IRS, Audit, and Criminal Tax Defense
The federal government and the state of California prosecute tax offenders aggressively — and sometimes deliver harsh penalties in the event of a conviction. Depending on the details of your circumstances, you could be facing years behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines, in addition to the long-term repercussions of having a checkered financial history. If you believe you may be at risk for criminal prosecution, you need to protect your rights with an aggressive tax attorney. David W. Klasing handles criminal tax defense issues including but not limited to:
- FBAR Compliance and Disclosure
- IRS Criminal Investigations
- Payroll Tax Fraud
- Tax Evasion Fraud
- Tax Preparer Fraud
- Voluntary Offshore Disclosure (OVDI Program)
The Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiative (OVDI) Program, FBAR, and FATCA
OVDI stands for the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiative. Its purpose is to allow program participants to avoid IRS criminal prosecution by “voluntary disclosing” any foreign accounts or entities which do not comply with FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). n addition to evading prosecution, this program also helps participants calculate the ultimate costs associated with resolving their foreign tax issues. FBAR stands for Foreign Bank Account Report. If a taxpayer deliberately fails to file an FBAR, he or she could be convicted and penalized with up to 25 years in jail, in addition to a staggering $500,000 fine. Gambling that the IRS won’t notice illegal activity simply isn’t worth the risk. We have helped many clients navigate FBAR, OVDI, and FACTA compliance.
