Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If you have committed tax evasion, that is a criminal offense and they will put a warrant out for you, but if you are in Thailand, there is an extradition treaty between the US and Thailand and they could have you arrested in Thailand and brought back to the US for trial. Generally, what they want more than anything is the money and if you have a good tax attorney they will be able to work out some type of negotiated deal with the IRS to either avoid them filing criminal charges at all and just allow you to pay the back taxes and penalties OR if they do file criminal charges to avoid you doing any actual time in jail and just receiving probation.

It is much easier for you to report the taxes due than if the IRS discovers it, because you reporting shows you want to fix the matter and most times they will agree to only an administrative case and not a criminal case.

You need to get a new tax lawyer and sit with them to get this matter settled with the IRS before it becomes something worse than it already is. The longer it goes on the worse it gets, so you need the tax attorney specifically and have them work this out with the IRS.
