From Our Clients Around The World
When we unexpectedly received a distribution from a foreign trust that we had been unaware of, we were suddenly confronted with the convoluted tax rules governing foreign trusts. At first, we sought the help of a regular tax preparer, who was a former IRS employee, but after some time it became clear that he was in way over his head. After a lot of searching, we found Eugene Sherayzen and immediately realized we were in good and knowledgeable hands. Eugene is an expert in this incredibly complex area, and he advised us and kept us informed as he professionally and efficiently prepared our tax returns. We shudder to think what would have happened with our tax returns if we had let the first preparer handle it.

I faced to an international tax issue in 2014. The issue was very complicated because the issue included several aspects (such as streamlined disclosure, capital gain tax, Form 8938, FBAR, and state tax) in same time. I tried to contact local CPAs, but they even could not understand what is going on (absolutely they also could not provide any solution at all). I was very frustrated and tried to find an expert on international tax issue. Fortunately, I found Attorney Sherayzen through internet. Once I contacted to Attorney Sherayzen, I did not have to pay attention to the tax issue anymore. He investigated my situation very carefully and provided the best solution for me. And then he made his plan become true. Attorney Sherayzen is a very trustworthy person. If someone needs any help related to international tax or foreign account, I highly recommend Attorney Sherayzen. From 2014, I have been working with Attorney Sherayzen.

We first came to know about FBAR around end of 2012 and found out that we had some accounts in our home country that should have been reported. Unfortunately, we did not have any knowledge of these accounts and they were opened by our parents when we were minors. It was a complicated and unpleasant situation, exacerbated by a myriad of conflicting information online.
We spoke to atleast 8-10 law firms to request specific assistance to comply with FBAR/FATCA and tax rules, ultimately hiring an attorney in California, who claimed to be expert in FBAR laws and regulations. That attorney did not provide us proper guidance, and seemed to rush to conclusions without taking time to understand our specific situation. After wasting a little more than thousand dollars, we decided to fire her. At that time of despair, we luckily found Attorney Sherayzen in Minneapolis. In our very first meeting with Attorney Sherayzen, it became clear to us that he was very knowledgeable in the area and knew what he was talking about. He listened to our case in detail and provided a very acceptable solution. Also, his fees was reasonable for our case, in fact less than what some other attorneys quoted us to take on the case. We highly recommend his services without any hesitation.

The tax laws on foreign accounts are extraordinarily complex, particularly with regard to mutual funds. My wife and I have been extraordinarily impressed by the expertise and professionalism of Mr. Sherayzen. He found the very best way of approaching our own specific situation and handled everything in an extremely precise, thorough way. His totally above-board, scrupulously honest way of the dealing with tax issues is undoubtedly building a very high reputation with the tax authorities, and this can only benefit those who are fortunate enough to be his clients.
Mr. Sherayzen is a subject-matter-expert who is very thorough in gathering complete information, and based on that, provides options and next steps related recommendations. Mr. Sherayzen is very intelligent and is analytical and rational in addressing the issue at hand. He exercises discipline, structure, and rigorous determination in his thinking. At the same time he has exhibited remarkable rational skills in working with people from different backgrounds. He has the ability to listen and he is flexible. I highly recommend Mr. Sherayzen and his law firm, Sherayzen Law Office.
“My wife and I engaged the services of Eugene Sherayzen in 2009, feeling very apprehensive as we were by no means familiar with legal processes.
He very quickly made us at ease with his friendly manner and also added to that ease with his professional expertise and obvious knowledge of the legal situation relative to our case.
He scheduled our meetings to not only cover the steps necessary, but also efficiently, so as to be aware of costs in what is after all an expensive process.
At the start we had engaged an attorney and by the finish we had gained a friend.
I would recommend Eugene Sherayzen not only as an efficient and professionally knowledgeable attorney but also as a person who can empathically guide clients through stressful and difficult situations”.
Stanley and Diane Coombes.
Some years ago, and quite by accident, I discovered that my hitherto unreported Malaysian medical insurance policy met the arcane FATCA definition of “bank account”, and was therefore reportable on the FBAR. Having read of the draconian penalties sometimes imposed on unfortunates who failed to report such “bank accounts”, I began frantically searching for an American tax lawyer on the internet. By sheer luck I happened upon Eugene’s somewhat unorthodox website. Eugene could not save me from months of sleepless nights and stomach-churning anxiety, but his efficiency, meticulous attention to detail, and profound knowledge of the intricacies of the most byzantine of American tax laws saved me and my meagre fortune from ruin. Since then, I have relied on Eugene to prepare my taxes every year. My stomach is much better, and I get plenty of sleep. Eugene is everything you want in a lawyer. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and expeditious, and he doesn’t charge you an arm and a leg. That he is also a nice guy with a sense of humour is icing on the cake. I can enthusiastically recommend him!
“The legal advice and service Mr. Eugene Sherayzen provided to me was absolutely superb. Mr. Sherayzen is comprehensive in his background research, attentive to detail, diligent, and creative.
He laid out the possible legal options I had, navigating me through the pros and cons of each option, and counseling me as to which was best. Mr. Sherayzen has a deep knowledge of the law and applies it well to a particular case.
Mr. Sherayzen’s thoroughness, honesty, and patience is professionalism at its best. Although my case experienced long periods of uncertainty, Mr. Sherayzen firmly guided me to an understanding of what was important about the situation, genuinely encouraging me to maintain my sense of optimism. I highly recommend Mr. Sherayzen and his firm, Sherayzen Law Office.”
