Skip the Penalties and Catch Up Now!
The Offshore Streamlined Procedure is an IRS approved amnesty program that helps Americans overseas catch up with their US tax filings with no penalties nor undue scrutiny by the IRS. Our team of expert American CPAs is proud to have perfected the Streamlined Procedure – our online process is simple, straightforward, and easy to access worldwide.
Qualification is Simple
To catch up using the Streamlined Procedure you must:
- File your last 3 federal tax returns
- File your last 6 FBARS (Foreign Bank Account Reports), if applicable
- Pay any taxes due (often zero, once you claim one or more expat exclusions)
- Self-certify that your previous failure to file was non-willful
What Does it Cost?
Our headline IRS Streamlined Procedure package of $957 includes 3 tax returns, as required. If you have to file FBARs for any of the last 6 years too (required in years when you had over $10,000 in foreign accounts), add $79 / year. So a maximum 3 tax returns and 6 FBARs costs $1,431.
What Does ‘Non-Willful’ Mean?
The IRS defines non-willful as not filing because of a good faith misunderstanding of the requirement for you to file.
Will the IRS Actually Find Me?
Since the US law called FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) was enacted in 2010, most foreign banks (now over 300 thousand and counting) are now providing their American account holders’ balances and contact details to the IRS, so the IRS now has unprecedented and global reach. Catching up using the Streamlined Procedure gives US expats the opportunity to avoid IRS fines while retro-claiming the exemptions allowing them to minimize their US tax liability – most often to zero.
