Voluntary Disclosure and Amnesty Programs
For many yeas, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has offered a voluntary disclosure program to allow taxpayers to resolve tax issues before they are audited or face a criminal investigation. Recent IRS and Department of Justice investigations into offshore accounts have led to an increased use of voluntary disclosure programs by taxpayers to avoid higher civil penalties or criminal prosecution.
Many individuals and business owners are knowingly violating federal and state tax law, but would like to come into compliance. Taxpayers who would otherwise comply with the tax laws if they had some level of certainty of their potential risk exposure would be well served under a voluntary disclosure program. Depending on the facts of your case, a voluntary disclosure program will provide you with more predictability of the outcome of your case. Many disclosure programs are temporary amnesty programs, so you should contact an experienced tax attorney as soon as possible about your situation.
