This CLE/CPE webinar will provide tax counsel and advisers with a practical discussion of the tax implications, reporting requirements of cross-border activities, and issue-based examinations of foreign activities of individuals and companies. The panel will review complex international tax issues associated with cross-border transactions, discuss navigating the compliance and reporting obligations, and guide advisers on how to avoid the assessment of penalties, additional tax liability, and potential audits.


The IRS continues to aggressively assess penalties for failure to comply with the reporting requirements of individuals and companies engaged in cross-border activities. The IRS continues LB&I-conducted compliance campaigns focused on international tax issues, resulting in increased scrutiny of taxpayer reporting of foreign assets.

In light of increased IRS focus, possessing an in-depth understanding of international tax rules and regulations will assist counsel and tax advisers in helping taxpayers maintain compliance and avoid IRS examination. A taxpayer's failure to properly adhere to reporting and filing requirements associated with cross-border activities and foreign assets can result in severe civil and criminal penalties.

Listen as our panel guides advisers on the most complex aspects of international tax compliance in connection with cross-border reorganizations (Form 5471), transactions with related parties for certain foreign-owned U.S. corporations (Form 5472), gifts from foreign persons (Form 3520), as well as FBAR and FATCA filing and reporting requirements, planning methods for cross-border activities, guidance on IRS issue-based examinations, and effectively handling audits.



  1. IRS protocol for issue-based examinations and guidelines for counsel
  2. Reporting standards and methods to avoid penalties and additional tax liability and ensure compliance
  3. Strategies for handling FBAR audits, opt-outs, appeals, and litigation


The panel will review these and other key concepts:

  • Reporting requirements and methods for offshore compliance
  • Tactics in handling IRS issue-based examinations
  • Appealing penalty assessments, handling audits, and litigation tactics
