2012 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program
New Overseas Voluntary
Disclosure Program (OVDP 2012)
For those who missed out on OVDI (Overseas
Voluntary Disclosure Initiative) 2011, here
is another opportunity.
The IRS has reopened the Offshore Voluntary
Disclosure Program (OVDP). The program is
similar to the 2011 program in many ways,
but with a few key differences. Unlike last
year, there is no set deadline for people
to apply - at least as of now. This program
allows another opportunity to those tax
payers who have not been regularly filing
FBAR (Report of
Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts)
and other overseas financial disclosures.
The overall penalty structure for the new
program is the same for 2011, except for
taxpayers in the highest penalty category.

New Reporting Requirements by U.S. Taxpayers
Holding Foreign Financial Assets (Form 8938)
In addition to the FBAR filing, Taxpayers
with specified foreign financial assets
that exceed certain thresholds must report
those assets to the IRS on Form 8938, Statement
of Specified Foreign Financial Assets. The
new Form 8938 filing requirement does not
replace or otherwise affect a taxpayers
requirement to file FBAR. This Form is part
of the Tax return and accordingly must be
filed by the due date of Individual tax
return in Form 1040.
