Santa Barbara International Tax Attorney Andrew L. Jones
International Tax Attorney Andrew L. Jones
Tax attorney Andrew L. Jones graduated in 2009 with a J.D. and a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, and was licensed that same year to practice law in California.
Andrew limits his practice to international tax controversy, compliance, and planning, focusing in particular on IRS voluntary disclosure programs for resolving unreported and/or un-taxed foreign accounts (including the Streamlined Domestic Offshore Procedures, Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedures, Delinquent FBAR Submission Procedures, and the Delinquent International Information Return Submission Procedures, with this last option arguing reasonable cause as a defense to all penalties).
Andrew therefore solely accepts clients with cross-border/international tax issues.
Andrew has guided hundreds of clients through the collective disclosure of over $200 million in previously-unreported foreign assets (statistics as of January 2022).
Andrew serves his tax clients from seven offices (San Francisco, Palo Alto, Walnut Creek, Santa Barbara, Irvine, San Diego and Seattle) and provides accounting services to his clients through international tax-focused teams in San Diego and Washington State. Finally, Andrew serves clients worldwide (including Washington state) on matters strictly limited to federal taxation and foreign asset reporting, including the Foreign Bank Account Report (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts), Form 926 penalties, Form 3520 penalties, Form 3520-A penalties, Form 5471 penalties, Form 8865 penalties, and Form 8938 penalties.
Andrew earned his B.A. in Political Science from UCLA in 2003 (with a minor in Public Policy), and in 2009, earned his law degree from Loyola Law School (Los Angeles) and later that year, graduated a semester early – and with distinction – from Loyola’s Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation program.
His career focus on taxation began with his 2007 summer internship in the Washington, D.C. chambers of United States Tax Court Judge Mark V. Holmes. Upon his return for his second year at Loyola Law, Andrew concentrated his academic efforts in the tax field, ultimately completing 37 units of tax course work.
