About Anthony

Learn Anthony’s areas of practice.

I am an attorney at law and certified public accountant with over 20 years of tax experience representing individual and business clients before the Internal Revenue Service. I have represented hundreds of taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service in FBAR penalty cases, audit examinations, appeals, penalty abatement requests, lien and levy removal and collection due process hearings, often times resulting in a substantial reduction of federal income taxes and the abatement of civil penalties and interest. I have also been successful in resolving delinquent tax liability cases through the use of Installment Agreements, Offers in Compromise and by placing financially troubled clients into “Uncollectible” status.

IRS FBAR and OVDI compliance representation expertise / style
As a long-term ex-pat US citizen living in Europe, I was surprised several years ago by an polite invitation from the IRS, via email, to consider filing FBARs, along with updated income tax returns. Although (or because) I am a university academic with specialization in comparative labor law, I quickly realized this process was far, far more complicated than I could personally manage. Checking with old friends, now lawyers, in the US brought me to Anthony's website. Over a period of time, Anthony Verni collected the relevant data, calmed us down (maybe the calming came first), and assumed legal representation to IRS for me, my wife, and our daughter. The process took a few years, all delay time was on the side of IRS, not our legal representation. 2. Anthony charged a flat rate, with a modest, yet proper, additional fee due to a very entertaining, if complex, IRS agent. 3. He saw us through income tax compliance, FBAR compliance, and our being cleared by IRS without penalty. He further saw our daughter, who wound up in an unfortunate FBAR filing oversight penalty threat, gain clearance with a but a written warning and no financial penalty from IRS in an OVD "opt-out" step that was a proper and just conclusion to her circumstance. 4. It is difficult to live overseas and entrust your IRS treatment to a person never met, over a process impossible to personally stay on top of, despite advanced levels of education. Anthony saw us through for appropriate fees, stated at the outset, and observed to the end (I note again there was a modest additional amount he thought appropriate due to IRS agent hardship..., which I fully approved :-) ). 5. His performance was exemplary to task and I am both very grateful and pleased to recommend him.

Sound advice. High caliber work.
One of those people who were born by chance in the USA but never lived or worked there, in 2015 , I had no choice but to file returns with the IRS. For this purpose, fortunately, I found Mr Verni on the internet and entrusted him with the complex process involved in using the Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedure of the IRS. Mr Verni re-constructed six years of tax returns, literally analizing hundreds of pages of stock market trades and other transactions in order to file the corresponding FBARs. His advice proved sound and the caliber of his work high. As a result, I am now compliant with the IRS. I will certainly be calling on him for future years of tax filings.

The expat's solution to US tax problems
I met Anthony after comparing advice and quotes from 5 different expat tax experts, all based in the U.S. I had an initial free telephone consult with Anthony about my issues with non-filing of Fbars for my foreign accounts investments. The other attorneys I contacted had advised me that the only solution for me was to enter into the dreaded Voluntary Offshore Disclosure Program and then attempt opt out and go through an IRS audit. A costly and time consuming solution that is very risky. After discussing the details of my particular situation Anthony, he advised me of an alternative approach that would avoid me having to enter into the OVDP. He helped me re-file my past returns and get my Fbars in order in a manner that was much less costly and financially risky. Anthony is very straight forward, extremely knowledgeable of the unique problems faced by expats and those with overseas investments. I found working with him very easy, the turnaround was fast and his fees are absolutely great value for the service and peace of mind your receive. I highly recommend Anthony's services to help you put your IRS issues to rest.

verni's professional services Review
Beside his inbepth knowledge of the law, Anthony will setup weekend appointments to accommodate his clients. I really appreciate that because otherwise I would have had to miss time, thus money from work.
