Late Filing Tax Returns Service
$1800 (Streamlined Package)
If you haven’t filed previous-year returns and are looking to start fresh with the IRS, we can help guide you through the IRS amnesty programs including the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (“OVDP”) or the Streamlined Procedures, which lets non-willful late filers get caught up,with little to no penalties by filing six years of FBARs and three years of tax returns. We’ll help you find the right solution for your situation.
The IRS Streamlined Procedures
The most popular and advantageous of the IRS amnesty programs is the Streamlined Procedures. Under this program, a late filer can come clean with the IRS with potentially no penalties by filing tax returns, with all required information returns, for the prior 3 years, and any delinquent FBARs for the prior 6 years.
In order to qualify for the Streamlined Procedures, you must demonstrate in a written statement that your previous non-compliance was not willful. Our experts have guided numerous clients through this process and will ensure that you have the best opportunity to qualify for the amnesty program.
Our flat fee of $1800 includes the preparation of 3 previous tax returns, 6 previous FBAR forms, and guidance and review of your non-willful statement.
Please note that this fee applies to our basic Streamlined Package. Should you require special information reporting, such as Form 8938 (FATCA), Form 5471 (ownership in foreign corporations), Form 3520 (foreign trusts) and the like, additional fees may apply. For a price list regarding these and other special information forms, please see our Federal Return page.
Other Late Filing Options
In addition to the Streamlined Procedures, taxpayers are given a number of other options by the IRS for catching up with their taxes.
These options include:
Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program
