Steven Toscher will be speaking on Litigating Foreign Asset Reporting Tax Penalties: The Controversies Continue. It’s been more than a decade since the wall of Swiss bank secrecy fell revealing the extent to which US taxpayers had unreported foreign assets. In the intervening years, the IRS has continued its focus on finding and penalizing those assets. The law and procedures regarding FBAR, 5471, 8938, and 3520 penalties have been developing rapidly as taxpayers contest the assessment of liabilities that can be unexpectedly large. This panel discusses the latest developments relating to foreign asset reporting penalties, as well as practical tips for representing taxpayers contesting the imposition of such penalties. On the panel with Steve will be Phillip Colasanto, Esq., Associate, Agostino & Associates, PC, Jeffrey A. Neiman, Esq., and Lindsey D. Stellwagen, Esq., Special Counsel (International), Internal Revenue Service, Washington, DC
Dennis Perez will be participating in the IRS Small Busienss/Self-Employed Division Update of the Tax Compliance and Enforcement Update Part 1
Voluntary compliance and enforcement of the tax law are at the heart of our tax system. Over the past several years, the IRS has been challenged to come up with new and more efficient ways to ensure that all taxpayers pay the correct amount of tax. This panel provides an update on new developments at the IRS and in the Tax Court.
