On June 18, 2014, Kenneth Ahl, Esq., a Partner in Archer P.C.’s Philadelphia office, gave a presentation in Istanbul before the Oxford Club on the topic of The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

Mr. Ahl’s seminar, titled “Gotcha! The IRS Hunt for Unreported Foreign Income”, highlighted the steps IRS has taken since 2008 to encourage compliance with IRS reporting rules and how it has gone after advisors and institutions that were helping US citizens and residents evade tax. The discussion also described the reach of FATCA and the implications it has for Americans living abroad and for those taxpayers who have not complied with US reporting requirements.
Ken’s expertise on the subject was sought out and featured in the latest Oxford Club Newsletter, which can be read here.
