IRS Voluntary Disclosures
Americans living in Canada who have violated United States tax laws are in danger of prosecution by the United States government. However, they can effectively avoid prosecution and penalties by taking advantage of the IRS Voluntary Disclosure Program or the IRS Streamlined Filing Procedures by self-reporting their tax non-compliance to the IRS before the IRS begins an investigation.
