Need help from the IRS?

You'll need extra patience 


The National Taxpayers' Advocate Service released its annual report to Congress on January 14, 2015. The big takeaway for taxpayers? Budgetary cuts over the past few years mean taxpayers with questions are going to have a hard time getting answers. Nina Olson wrote: “Taxpayers who need help are not getting it, and tax compliance is likely to suffer over the longer term if these problems are not quickly and decisively addressed," 


What does this mean? Here are some projections for fiscal year 2015: 

  • Roughly 50% of calls to the IRS helpline will go unanswered.
  • Taxpayers who are lucky enough to have their call answered will wait 30 minutes on average.
  • The IRS will devote less time to answering tax law questions. During filing season, only the most basic questions will be answered. Once filing season has ended, no questions will be answered. This means the roughly 15 million taxpayers who file late will not be able to have their questions answered, even if they go visit an IRS office in person. 
  • Assistance for preparing tax returns has been eliminated.

The decline in taxpayer services spells danger for the average American. If you can't get the IRS to answer your tax questions, be sure to contact us with questions or reach out to a local chapter of the AICPA or NSA or another accounting society as they may be able to refer you to non-profit help centers.

Who qualifies for OVDP?

The offshore voluntary disclosure program is designed for NRI taxpayers who earn income from overseas while living in the US, and have not previously reported this income.

How to file OVDP or Streamlined OVDP?

Filing OVDP or streamlined OVDP is a complex task. It may include filing amended returns. Taxpayers are usually required to file 6 years of FBAR. A signed certificate stating full disclosure is also required.

Benefit to filing now vs after the window closes?

There is significant risk in filing undisclosed overseas assets after the OVDP window closes. Penalties include 27.5% of each bank account balance as well as other fines. The IRS can also request tax records going back several years. Criminal prosecution is a risk, as well having your passport revoked
