Course Description

On September 28, 2018, the Internal Revenue Service closed its long-running and hugely successful Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program. Initially unveiled in March 2009, the OVDP proved to be the most successful tax amnesty program in IRS history, with over 55,000 taxpayers disclosing offshore assets and paying over $11 billion in back taxes, interest, and penalties.

Despite the closure of OVDP, the IRS and the Justice Department continue their unprecedented criminal and civil enforcement campaign against non-compliant taxpayers.

Voluntary disclosure options remain available to taxpayers, such as the Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures and traditional voluntary disclosure practice, among others. This webinar will review all of the options available to non-compliant taxpayers and discuss the benefits and risks of various courses of action in the post-OVDP world.
