The IRS Is Increasing Investigations on Offshore Account Holders – Will You Be Next?
The IRS has increased investigations into offshore accounts and account holders in an effort to reduce tax evasion. Illinois taxpayers who have ownership of or signature authority over foreign accounts have an obligation to disclose them if the aggregate total of their accounts surpasses $10,000 at any point during a calendar year. This threshold applies to the combined total of all accounts, not to each account’s individual peak – a guideline that many taxpayers often misunderstand.
Failing to disclose offshore accounts can cause taxpayers to sustain costly penalties, like having to pay expensive fines, or worse, imprisonment. However, with the help of an experienced Illinois IRS attorney, you can reduce or even eliminate your chances of suffering legal and financial tax-related consequences.

Were you aware of the fact that taxpayers are required to report foreign financial accounts by filing an FBAR, regardless of whether they have a personal interest in or only signature authority over the accounts? Many taxpayers are not aware of the intricate details surrounding offshore account reporting laws, which can lead not only to involuntary mistakes, but to costly fines and possibly even criminal tax charges. Fortunately, Thorn Law Group is dedicated to preventing this outcome for our clients.
