FCC club lunch with Laurence E. LIPSHER
Speaker: Laurence E. LIPSHER
An American C.P.A.
Topic: Form 8938, the Venus Fly Trap of the I.R.S.
If you are liable for filing U.S. Income taxes and you thought last year was bad, be prepared – it is getting worse.
Mr. LIPSHER, in his annual U.S. tax “stand-up” comedic performance (because it is far better to laugh than to cry) will cover the new Form 8938, the draconian IRS penalty regime (which the IRS is really enforcing), and the third IRS Voluntary Disclosure program.
Long-time FCC member Laurence E. ‘Larry’ LIPSHER is an American CPA who has been doing U.S. tax returns for the past 45 years – 22 of those years while living in Asia.
