Business Checks

The penalties are even higher when the noncompliance is on the basis of intentional disregard.
Office Of Foreign Assets Control, Department of Treasury
Unlike IRS penalties for TIN Match discrepancies, payers that do not verify with the Office Of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) are subject to civil and criminal penalties. An organization that does not comply with the OFAC is penalized with up to $1,000,000 per violation, additional criminal fines of up to $10,000,000, and imprisonment ranging from 10 to 30 years.
