  • How to deal with a "dormant" account at a foreign bank that a taxpayer just found out about.
  • Update on important developments in the Foreign and Domestic Streamline areas including timing and what to expect by way of IRS responses and penalties.
  • Are any Israeli banks currently being investigated by the IRS and is it possible to address non-compliance issues for those affected taxpayers?
  • Updates on expatriation related tax matters involving "covered expatriates" including those who live outside the United States.
  • Continued discussion on Section 965 Repatriation Tax in light of the "looming" deadline for initial payment on June 15, 2018.
  • Discussion on choice of entity in light of the reduced corporate tax rate.
  • Updates on new Code Section 199A and opportunities to secure 20% reduced tax rate.
