Accountants who get FBAR

We provide comprehensive assistance for the IRS’s FBAR (Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) program to individuals and businesses. As you may know, the IRS is cracking down on the disclosure requirements for offshore accounts and foreign assets, even to the extent of applying criminal penalties. If you may be subject to this requirement, we can help!

Every year, under the law known as the Bank Secrecy Act, you must report certain foreign financial accounts, such as bank accounts, brokerage accounts and mutual funds, to the Treasury Department and keep certain records of those accounts. You report the accounts by filing a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) on FinCEN Form 114.

Our Process for Preparing an IRS Audit Defense

#1. Awareness – Hopefully your accounting firm has prepared your bookkeeping records and other tax records to substantiate each and every deduction, as well as provide documentation on income and expenses in every category.

If you are new to the Safe Harbor LLP CPA firm family, understanding your records and tax situation will be one of our first priorities. If you are an existing client, we are sure that your records will be in good shape.

If you are faxing an IRS audit or an FTB audit (or both), we are aware of each and every new tax issue that you may fax.

#2. Compliance – Our second objective is to analyze your past returns in the context of current tax laws (both Federal and state of California). We can then provide return objective advice on your correct compliance.

#3. Personal Consultation – When responding to an IRS or FTB inquiry, we will inform you of your situation and act in full compliance with the law. However, tax laws are complicated, and having an expert CPA or tax accounting firm at your side both in written compliance and even in face-to-face meetings with the IRS and/or FTB can spell the difference between success or failure in dealing with an IRS, FTB, or other tax audit entity.

#4. Closure – Finally, we pride ourselves in putting our customers first. Our motto is “We work harder for you,” meaning we strive to take the burden of responding to the IRS or FTB off of you while keeping you informed every step of the way. We respond to our client inquiries in a timely manner while informing you as much as you like about any pending audit issues.
