Foreign Reporting
November 18, 2014
In discussing international tax evasion, the 2013 Federal Budget announced there would be changes to Form T1135 – Foreign Income Verification. We’ve seen great confusion and concern among tax preparers and investment advisors. Meanwhile, taxpayers and their advisors struggle to comply with these rapidly changing, and often unclear, requirements, with the threat of financial penalties and extended reassessment periods always present. What’s changed? What’s stayed the same? What do you need to know to prepare these forms? This webinar will help answer these questions for fiscal 2014 and beyond.
