News

  

As a public service, Tax Lawyer Richard Sam Lehman sets up “The Lehman Tax Law Library” with all articles and videos about various tax matters


Richard Lehman, a highly respected Tax Lawyer based in Boca Raton, Florida, announced today that “The Lehman Tax Library” is now available online. The library is a public service and contains all of Mr. Lehman’s tax law articles and videos. In addition, there is a “search” feature that allows users to search the videos and articles by keyword.


Mr. Lehman explains that he “started a Blog with legal information and commentary, but eventually, with the growth of the content, it became too unwieldy and different to search. I therefore decided to organize all of the information more efficiently, and use an indexing service so that the Library can be searched by keyword.”


Mr. Lehman is providing all this information as a public service, free of charge. “I have focused on this area of law for almost 50 years, and at this stage in my life, I would like to share all the knowledge I have acquired. Some of the information is even available to my esteemed colleagues in the profession as materials authorized for ‘Continuing Legal Education’ (CLE).”


Many of the newer videos and articles are related to the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017” (also referred to as “Trump Tax Cuts”). Other subjects include specialized articles and videos on subjects such as “Favorable Tax Consequences Related to Ponzi Schemes and the Clawback,” “Ponzi Schemes and Theft Losses,” as well as articles on FATCA, Offshore Bank Accounts & Foreign Assets, Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP), and Streamlined Filing Compliance. 


Finally, Mr. Lehman notes as to the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP): “It is important for U.S. taxpayers who still have unreported bank deposits to know that the OVDP program which applies to ‘willful wrongdoers’ will discontinue on September 28, 2018. Persons not in compliance may face massive financial and criminal penalties with little recourse.”
