The federal government loses billions of dollars in tax revenue due to offshore accounts of American taxpayers. If you have offshore bank accounts and you haven't declared the money on your tax returns, you may mean big problem. The IRS now also has an agreement with Swiss Banks, such as UBS, by which they have unprecedented amount of information about offshore bank accounts. The IRS can now investigate offshore bank accounts of high net worth American individuals.

If you have already missed the October 15, 2009, tax amnesty deadline for voluntary disclosure, you can still get the necessary tax help. Getting professional tax representation to help you with your offshore bank accounts will help you reduce severe IRS penalties.

It is always better to disclose your foreign funds in the offshore bank accounts and pay due taxes on them for your peace of mind. If you haven't disclosed it, and you fear that the IRS may find out, you should immediately contact a tax attorney or an IRS licensed enrolled agent.

Tax Help for Declaring Offshore Bank Accounts:

If you, as a taxpayer, missed the voluntary disclosure memorandum by the October 15th filing deadline, which qualifies you for tax amnesty, you should immediately get tax help from expert tax professionals.

IRS's Criminal Investigation Division (CID) manages all offshore reporting activity. The Foreign Bank Account Reporting (FBAR) penalties for not filing and meeting the amnesty guidelines are severe: FBAR penalties can be 200-300% of the asset value of the account. The CID can also make a referral to the U.S. Department of Justice for felony indictment. If you are convicted of the crime, you can get 10 years in prison.


You can seek the penalty abatement process with the help of an expert tax representative or tax resolution service provider, who will try to minimize or reduce the impact of IRS penalties. The IRS licensed enrolled agent or the tax attorney take over the communication with the IRS on your behalf, make the disclosures necessary, file the FBAR reports and amend your tax returns.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation! Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied! Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends. Nancy & Sal V.
