Over the last 10 years, the IRS and DOJ have increased their efforts to both inform taxpayers of their tax filing requirements with respect to offshore assets and punish those taxpayers who fail to satisfy those requirements.
This course will cover the primary forms that U.S. persons need to file if they hold offshore assets or accounts, and what you should do to assist the client who has failed to make the necessary tax filings.
Josh Wu advises large corporations, mid-size businesses, startup companies, and high-net-worth individuals on all aspects of federal tax law. He has particular experience with resolving complex IRS audits, administrative appeals, civil tax litigation, offshore trusts and assets, multijurisdictional investigations, and IRS collection matters.
Josh represents clients in an array of tax controversies and tax litigation matters before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
He regularly helps clients respond to IRS information document requests, manage electronic discovery, prepare for interviews with the IRS, and navigate procedural issues.
Prior to joining Clark Hill Strasburger, Josh worked for several international law firms, including Latham & Watkins LLP, and has been quoted in major news outlets such as The Street, Federal Tax Weekly, and Business News Daily.
