Event Synopsis:
For the past years, offshore compliance has remained the top priority of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as shown by the numerous amnesty programs created to help taxpayers with their compliance, hence, avoiding unwanted legal and financial burdens arising from any potential violation. The Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP), one of the IRS' several amnesty programs, provides taxpayers with the option to resolve previous omissions, errors, and non-compliance issues.

Join a panel of key thought leaders, tax professionals and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of the IRS’ Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program and as they delve into the depth-analysis of the current trends and recent developments surrounding this significant topic. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies to avoid significant risks and penalties arising from tax scams and schemes.

Key topics include:
• IRS OVDP – An Overview
• Offshore Tax Avoidance Penalties
• Compliance Challenges and Pitfalls
• Strategies and Best Practices
• Trends, Developments, and Recent Updates

Brad Bennett

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
