Assisting Austria Taxpayers With Complex Voluntary Disclosure Matters
Thorn Law Group resolves complex tax cases, including matters related to offshore voluntary disclosure. If you are a U.S. taxpayer with foreign accounts, foreign-held assets or foreign-sourced income in Austria, we can help you save thousands – if not millions – in fees and help you avoid severe IRS civil and criminal charges.
Your Austria Offshore Account Information May Be Compromised
The IRS is cracking down on tax evasion and is focusing its efforts on investigating U.S. taxpayers with offshore accounts. If you have a financial interest in or signature authority over a bank account in Austria, your account information may have already been compromised.
Austria has entered into an agreement with the U.S. to report information about U.S. account holders as part of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). If you haven’t disclosed your foreign-held assets and the IRS finds out, you are likely to incur severe financial, civil and criminal tax penalties.
According to the FATCA, all U.S. taxpayers must report their foreign account information when filing their income taxes on a separate document, known as Form 8938. U.S. taxpayers must also disclose their offshore assets on Form 114, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) if the aggregate total of their offshore accounts exceeds $10,000 in a calendar year and file the form electronically with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).
Both FATCA and FBAR violations carry hefty penalties, which can often be greater than the actual sum of the taxpayer’s offshore assets. To avoid the ramifications of a tax violation, it is imperative that account holders consult with an experienced Austria IRS attorney.
