Before we delve into the subject matter of today’s discussion, I’d like to introduce myself so that you know a little bit about who I am and what it is I do.
I know that about half of you already know but the other half does not. As I’ve just said in my crude French a minute ago, I’m an international Tax Lawyer and owner of Sherayzen Law Office, Ltd., a law firm that specializes in International Tax Compliance, in particular Offshore Voluntary Disclosures and this is by far my biggest area of law or sub-area: Annual US Tax Compliance, IRS Audits and Appeals and International Tax Planning.
I’ve dealt with clients from over 60 countries with assets around the world including Francophone countries like France, Belgium, and Switzerland – the French part of Switzerland and even some French speaking African countries.
Unfortunately, I only offer my services in three languages at this point: English, Russian and Spanish but maybe in a couple of years I’ll do it in French as well.
