Penalty is 500 times the amount of tax due

in my Twitter stream this morning:

@philiphodgen Is the IRS waging a class war against wealthy expats? Did not file FBARs and made errors, tax due $2 penalty $1 million

@philiphodgen To clarify, tax due for six years of returns, about $2k, penalty of over $1 million
