UK US Tax is one of the few U.S.-based tax firms that specializes in helping expatriates as well as U.S. individual taxpayers residing in the U.S. comply with filing their previous income years’ tax returns and foreign bank account reporting forms (FBARs), to enable them to become compliant with their required filings. The two filing programs are OVDP and Streamline:
Offshore Delinquent International Informational Return Submission Procedures – DIIRSP
This program is for individuals that need to file delinquent international information returns and who are not under a civil examination or a criminal investigation by the IRS and who is not under audit, been contacted formally by the IRS, or under criminal investigation.

Streamlined Foreign Offshore Filing is an expanded and modified program designed to bring U.S. taxpayers back into compliancy with the IRS, accommodating an even wider group to include those taxpayers (including estates of individual taxpayers) also living within the United States, and not just those living abroad. Its aim is to simplify the process and does not involve the criminal division of the IRS. The program requires the filing of only three years of back returns and six years of FBARs. In this process, taxpayers must also certify that their non-compliance to pay taxes and file returns was not willful but rather a misjudgment or a result of negligence. UK US Tax has extensive experience with the Streamlined filing procedure, satisfying both our clients and the IRS regulations. For more information please see:
