and the IRS

by | Aug 4, 2018 | Blog | 0 comments

There is currently a trial underway that is drawing a substantial amount of publicity and not just because it relates to a wealthy individual running afoul of the complex US Tax code. While Mr. Manafort is garnering a lot of publicity because of who his past associations have been and where they are from, his trial is focusing on some rather mundane financial issues/crimes.

One of the key elements of the case against Mr. Manafort is the lack of proper reporting of foreign income or control over foreign bank accounts. The failure to follow the rules on these two issues can be very costly and in 2018 is something the US government can and will pursue. Consider that the penalties reach around $10,000 and climb from there and there is an incredible paper trail that can be easily followed in most cases and it is no wonder that the US government pursues these cases with vigor. Now that Mr. Manafort’s accountant and tax advisor has testified about how he answered the questions related to for US tax purposes, it will be interesting to see how his defense team responds. Ignorance of the has typically not worked well as a defense in these cases, especially when the prosecution has provided evidence of extensive use of by the defendant for regular and exotic purchases.

For anyone getting nervous about their foreign holdings or wishing to avoid a Manafort spectacle trial experience, GP CPA is only an email or call away.

This firm is absolutely the best that I've dealt with when it comes to CPAs and financial advice. I'd gone to another CPA in the area for help with my small business during tax time, they stopped communicating and I was left with important documentation not filed and a lot of anxiety around what to do. My appointment with Justin was set up quickly and I was in within a couple days to sit down with him. When you first meet him, you get the impression that he's incredibly intelligent and knows what he's talking about. He took the time to guide me through each and every step that I needed to take to move forward and actually ended up saving me money. I am so grateful to him for his knowledge and professionalism. Total life saver! If you're a small business owner, you should not be taking your time, money or business anywhere else but GP CPA and their crew 🙂read more

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
