These new procedures apply to both domestic and offshore voluntary disclosures, and in many ways, they replicate the procedures under the now-shuttered OVDP. In other ways, the new procedures are significantly different, particularly the new civil penalty framework, which calls for the imposition of a 50 percent penalty on undisclosed offshore financial assets, and a 75 percent civil fraud penalty on unpaid taxes. This program will trace the history of IRS voluntary disclosure programs, review key elements of the new regime

Businesses subject to the CCPA need to
