Ok. Joe wants to come clean.
Can he?
(His income in country A has always been below 100K)
Yes, you might (or might not) be fined. You can easily ask the IRS these kinds of questions. You would have to refile for the 'forgotten' years. It doesn't matter if you earn no income, you still have to file.
