Off-Shore Unreported Income Issues: Protecting Against Criminal and Civil Liability In Today's Expanding Enforcement Environment

In light of the ongoing Department of Justice and U.S. Treasury initiatives regarding access to foreign financial account information, Norris McLaughlin & Marcus presents a breakfast seminar entitled "Off-Shore Unreported Income Issues: Protecting Against Criminal and Civil Liability In Today's Expanding Enforcement Environment." This seminar, directed to affected taxpayers, accountants, tax preparers and other professional in the tax field, will address how to report income related to offshore financial accounts and assets, including participation in the just announced reopening of the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program ("OVDP").

This seminar will discuss how a tax fraud case would typically unfold. Some of the topics and steps to be addressed include:

  • The new IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and participation considerations
  • New legislation and activity regarding off-shore account issues
  • The tax advisor's role in off-shore tax compliance
  • The tax advisor's role when faced with potential tax fraud cases
  • How the tax advisor can protect himself when a client has engaged in potential tax fraud

Speakers will include NM&M partners John Eagan and Melinda Fellner Bramwit, who will talk about OVDP issues, reporting of financial accounts, and voluntary disclosure options; Vinay Navani, CPA, from Wilkin & Guttenplan, who will review the compliance process for off-shore accounts; and NM&M partner Ted Margolis, former Chief Assistant United States Attorney of New Jersey, who will discuss tax fraud case issues pertinent to tax advisors. Bob Gabrielski, also a partner of NM&M, will moderate.
