Client Testimonials

I had a 1099-C for about $135,000. My husband didn't have any withholding on Social Security. His employer couldn't withhold due to incompetence. I felt utter dread wash over me. Memories of owing the IRS before were constantly on my mind. I called a local CPA. Besides being clueless, he wanted to charge me for every question I had about insolvency. I looked on line and found little hope of the countless stories of permanently disabled people like myself getting their student loans forgiven only to be asked to pay taxes on it as if it were income.
Somewhere, somehow, I find an article by Gary Bode. I bookmarked it for when it's time to do the actual taxes. With his excellent help in how to do all of this out of a virtual office I get my part of the work done. My questions got answered, for free. I give a retainer, do what I said I did and wait. I hear from Gary. I go into shock! How can this be? Not only do I not owe on the 135,000....Gary itemizes and after paying what was almost nothing in taxes we get $950.00 back! No more hubby doing the taxes online! I will use Gary Bode as long as he will agree to work with me!
It was so easy, no worries, but professional and top notch. I know I have thanked you Gary but I am so grateful. Thank you ever so much again!

CPA reports on IRS 2011 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiative deadline extension | Offshore Tax

CPA Wilmington NC discusses offshore tax issue.

Gary Bode, CPA: we offer complete offshore tax services via our virtual office. For a free initial phone consult, please call (910) 399-2705.

Thankfully, Hurricane Irene spared us here in Wilmington NC. But it prompted the IRS to announce, on behalf of the Criminal Investigation office, an extension for the 2011 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiative deadline, from August 31st to September 9, 2011. This helps our CPA office and others dealing with last-minute details. The program also offers other extensions of the deadline under certain circumstances.

This second IRS amnesty program encourages folks to report previously undisclosed foreign bank accounts. And catch up on related back taxes generated, of course. For some folks this is just about correcting non-compliance with reporting obligations. The IRS requires filing the notorious TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) annually, which incidently helps them verify offshore taxable income. About 15,000 taxpayers came in under the first amnesty program, reportedly generating $200 Million of additional tax liability.

Carrot; This second amnesty program states no criminal charges will be filed against successful applicants. Stick; the IRS expects FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) to force foreign banks to report offshore accounts held by Americans, implying the IRS will eventually catch and prosecute tax evaders who use offshore banking.
