Other Outstanding Achievements:
Glen has represented:
- taxpayers who have voluntarily disclosed hundreds of millions of dollars in offshore bank accounts and assets to the IRS. These disclosures were made by many taxpayers —some living abroad and others living Stateside—through a combination of the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program, Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures, and the Delinquent Filing Submission Procedures.
- hundreds of taxpayers who have undergone IRS audits and other similar government investigations. These investigations often involve very serious and sensitive issues and require sophisticated forensic accounting analyses.
- whistleblowers who have reported to the IRS Whistleblower office significant unpaid income tax liabilities. Glen represents both taxpayers accused of wrongdoing by whistleblowers, as well as whistleblowers themselves in claims before federal and state tax authorities.
- many individuals that were investigated by the Department of Justice for financial and tax related offenses including Bank Secrecy Act violations, structuring, conspiracy, money laundering, willful failure to file, and willful failure to pay. Glen has testified as an expert witness in the United States District Court relating to criminal tax sentencing.
- individuals who have interests in Controlled Foreign Corporations (CFCs), Foreign Trusts, Foreign Partnerships, Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs) and has brought them into compliance with the IRS.
Glen is assistant legal counsel for American Citizens Abroad, Inc., a 501(c)(4) organization with a mission to educate, advocate and inform the U.S. government and U.S. citizens living and working overseas on issues of concern to the overseas U.S. citizen community.
