Freeman Tax Law is a boutique law firm that helps clients to navigate the ever-changing landscape of tax law in the United States. One of the most significant changes in the past few years is the implementation of the Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act. This law requires overseas financial institutions to provide more transparent records regarding accounts and account holders with U.S. ties. Penalties for non-compliance can result in steep fines for individuals and a 30% sanction on foreign banking institutions for all funds transfers originating from the United States. Because of these new laws, many U.S. citizens who live or bank overseas are searching for a reliable law firm to assist them in complying with all the new FATCA disclosure and reporting requirements.
