Tax Trends Webinar Series Offshore Voluntary Disclosure A Clean Slate for Businesses


Course Description:
In 2012, the IRS launched a program for people with undisclosed income in offshore accounts. This program gives those who qualify the chance to disclose this offshore income on their tax returns. These individuals will be subject to a penalty; however, this penalty is a small price to pay to avoid criminal prosecution by the IRS. Changes have been made to the program in 2014. Join us to learn more about this legislation and its benefits.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the process and requirements of the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program
  • Discuss the changes between the original 2012 OVDP and the current 2014 legislation
  • Identify the benefits of making a voluntary disclosure
  • Determine how offshore penalties are calculated within the program
