The IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program (formerly the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program) is a relief program designed for taxpayers who have willfully failed to file U.S. income tax returns, report offshore income, or report foreign financial assets (such as investments or bank accounts) and pay taxes upon them.
In practice, Voluntary Disclosure Program is an IRS tax amnesty program that allows taxpayers to get back in the system by providing them with:
- Protection from criminal liability; and
- Terms for resolving their civil tax and penalty obligations.
The dual-licensed tax attorney-CPA’s, tax attorneys and other tax professionals at the law firm of Daniel Rosefelt & Associates, LLC regularly advise clients living in the U.S. and abroad about use of Voluntary Disclosure in order to avoid civil and criminal liability.
