Foreign Disclosure/Compliance

Teeple Hall, LLP assist international clients in reporting their offshore accounts to the Internal Revenue Serivce (IRS). Recently, many of our clients were made aware of Foreign Bank Account reporting requirements when they received a FATCA Letter from their banking institutions, asking them to confirm their U.S. status by providing either a W-9 or W-8 BEN.

Who is Required to Report?

Expats who have relocated overseas not knowing they have to report their foreign accounts.

U.S. Citizens who reside overseas that may or may not earn a significant income, but do have accounts in a foreign country.

Permanent Legal Residents of the U.S. who relocated back to a foreign country unaware that they are still required to report their foreign accounts.

Non Legal Residents who have met the substantial presence test and are required to report foreign bank and other accounts to the United States government.

Being Compliant to these rules will always in the long run save you time and money, but if you were unaware of these reporting requirements something can still be done.

Here are 3 main methods of compliance:

1. Streamlined Compliance


3. Reasonable Cause Statement

Estate Gift Tax

Teeple Hall, LLP can help you protect your assets.

Currently each individual can protect $5.43 million from gift and estate tax. If death occurs, this amount is protected from estate tax exposure. On the other hand, this amount could be given away without having to pay gift tax. The opportunity for protective planning is vast.

40% is the estate tax rate. This is a punishing and dramatic tax that can crush family legacies. At Teeple Hall, LLP we believe in “hoping for the best, and planning for the worst.” This means you should take full advantage of the tax and estate planning opportunities out there if your estate is approaching the exempted amount.

If you have been fortunate enough to build a financial legacy you want to give to your loved ones for their future security, you need to actively participate in estate and gift tax planning.

Through the use of such tools as irrevocable trusts and family limited partnerships, Teeple Hall, LLP helps you reduce or eliminate estate tax liabilities. Revocable trusts can be composed providing a substantial level of protection for married couples, your children, and even your grandchildren. Dynasty or Family Protection trusts are classically utilized to capture estate tax avoidance for all your future generations.

Together we can develop a practical estate and tax plan that offers you and your loved ones the best of all outcomes that could happen.
