EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

At Thorn Law Group, our experience makes the difference.  With over 80 years of combined tax law practice, our legal team has the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully resolve routine and complex tax law issues and controversies.  Many of the lawyers at our firm have worked as former IRS tax attorneys and served as law clerks with the U.S. Tax Court.  This background and experience gives our tax attorneys a unique understanding of how the Internal Revenue Service, the courts, and federal and state authorities operate and prosecute serious tax law violations.

Thorn Law Group is well-recognized throughout Virginia and around the country as a premier national and international tax law firm.  Kevin E. Thorn, the founding member and managing partner of the firm, has been featured in the Wall Street Journal special Capital Region’s Premier Lawyers supplement as a leading attorney in the DC metro area handling international, civil and criminal tax law cases.  Attorney Thorn’s experience and knowledge is highly regarded in state and national legal communities and he has presented on domestic and international tax law developments before the Federal Bar Association, state bar associations and at numerous conferences throughout the United States and abroad.

ADVISING CLIENTS ON 2018 CHANGES TO THE IRS OFFSHORE VOLUNTARY DISCLOSURE PROGRAM

Thorn Law Group has extensive experience representing clients seeking to participate in the IRS offshore voluntary disclosure program (OVDP).  Our tax attorneys have an in-depth understanding of how the OVDP programs work and we have helped hundreds of clients in Virginia, the U.S. and around the globe to bring their unreported offshore bank accounts into full compliance with the law. 

In October 2018, the IRS made important changes to its 2018 OVDP.  These changes were designed to increase the number of taxpayers voluntarily coming forward to report previously undisclosed offshore bank accounts.  These changes came after the IRS closed the program for a period lasting only a few months, as was announced in March of 2018. The 2018 modifications effect factors of an OVDP such as the assigned penalties, auditing window, and more. 

Every change to the IRS Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program is a preventative measure to ward off non-compliance with U.S. Tax Law. The 2018 OVDP was developed as to inspire taxpayers with offshore bank accounts to disclose them to the IRS. The first version of this particular Tax Amnesty Program was announced in 2009. Over the past 10 years, the IRS OVDP has undergone many changes and versions. The IRS has listened to the taxpayer community as well as the US Tax Advocate Service and has responded accordingly. 

Individuals and businesses residing in the Virginia area that have questions about offshore voluntary disclosures and the 2018 OVDP should consult with the experienced IRS voluntary disclosure attorney, Kevin E. Thorn, Managing Partner of Thorn Law Group that has over 40+ years of serving clients with offshore bank accounts and international assets.
