Until you know what to ask, you won't know if your clients need one of the many complex international information returns. The risk is high, with penalties ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 if returns are overlooked or completed incorrectly. Once these penalties are assessed, it can be nearly impossible to convince the IRS to waive them. Thus, it is critical for practitioners to screen clients to make sure that they are staying out of trouble and for business owners to understand the risks to make sure their team is covering all bases.
