Don’t let someone do the disclosure form for you unless they are a CPA with years of experience successfully doing the disclosure forms. We also suggest the CPA that does the disclosure form be done by an Ex- IRS agent who has many years of tax experience.
If the captive refers you to someone for the forms, they are probably protecting THEMSELVES and NOT YOU.
You need someone who specializes with theses disclosure forms. We suggest that the CPA that prepares the form be totally independent from the captive. The most Important question to ask the CPA is how many disclosure forms have they properly prepared.
Remember you get what you pay for. If the forms are done cheaply, you will PAY a lot when the IRS gets you.
As I have been warning for the last few years some captive insurance plans are being looked at and audited. If you are in a captive, which may be legal, you still may have to file under IRS 6707A. Most people who file do it wrong and then you have compounded the problem by lying to the IRS. Make one mistake on the forms and you have another problem.
On November 1, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) issued Notice 2016-66 identifying certain transactions relating to small captive insurance companies as a “transaction of interest.” Prior to this notice, the IRS had identified certain small captives as amongst its list of “Dirty Dozen Tax Scams.” Also, the IRS has been actively examining captives and their owners and litigating cases in the U.S. Tax Court. The new “transaction of interest” designation throws small captive insurance company transactions into a tax reporting regime that can potentially lead to significant penalties and IRS income tax and promoter examinations..
If you are considering a captive contact our experts. We provide an objective professional assessment.
