IRS Voluntary Disclosures
Palm Beach County Tax Lawyer
In certain circumstances, the IRS will take into account your voluntary disclosure of tax information in deciding whether there will be fines, penalties or criminal charges for any tax evasion or fraud. While the IRS is not required to consider your voluntary disclosure when determining whether charges will be filed, it has done so at times in the past. As a former IRS agent, Mr. Miller is intimately familiar with the practices of the IRS regarding voluntary disclosure. He knows the elements that are required in order for the IRS to consider your communication to be voluntary. Additionally, he understands what needs to be said to the IRS and how it should be presented in order to produce a positive result.
A taxpayer who is volunteering information must show a willingness to cooperate with the IRS in finding out what their correct tax liability should be. In addition, the taxpayer will need to make arrangements with the IRS, in good faith, to pay the full amount that they owe including any interest and penalties. If you are in a situation where you feel you should provide information to the IRS that you have not previously disclosed, contact a recognized Palm Beach County tax attorney for help.
