Orlando and Tampa Offshore Banking Defense Lawyers
Personalized Legal Advocacy for U.S. Citizens
If you or a loved one is facing issues related to offshore assets, including bank accounts, you need dedicated and aggressive counsel on your side. Offshore bank accounts and certain other assets, including offshore income, must be reported to the U.S. Treasury. The IRS and the Department of Justice have concentrated on unreported offshore accounts and consider unreported income from such accounts as one of the “Dirty Dozen” of tax fraud schemes.
At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., our federal criminal defense attorneys offer clients the following:
- Years of experience helping those in similar situations
- A legacy of successful cases handled efficiently
- In-depth experience and comprehensive knowledge
- Extensive investigations into your unique case
If you have unreported offshore accounts, or are under IRS audits, call (407) 901-5852
What Are Offshore Banking Charges?
Offshore accounts offer a number of benefits, including protecting your assets in more secure institutions, and diversifying your assets, among others. However, with these benefits comes increased measures and regulations by the U.S. government.
Offshore banking cases generally arise from a number of issues, including:
- Failure to report offshore income
- Not reporting offshore bank accounts
- Criminal charges of tax evasion
- Failing to file or filing a false tax return
- Failure to file or report the offshore bank accounts
Even if you did not know the current laws or rules, the government may still arrest and prosecute you. In these cases, it is particularly important that you have experienced legal counsel on your side to protect your rights.
What Penalties Do I Face?
Conviction for an offshore bank related offense can include prison terms for tax evasion, false statements on tax returns, and failure to file necessary offshore bank disclosure forms. Every year can be the basis for additional charges resulting in years in prison. In short, your assets and your freedom are in jeopardy. At the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., our nationwide federal criminal defense attorneys fight to keep you from being charged and will defend you at trial if the government proceeds with a charge. We know what it takes to stand between you and the government to protect your liberty and property.
