Seminar Summary:

There are similarities, but also very different filing requirement thresholds and definitions of applicable assets for each of these forms: FBAR Form FinCEN Form 114, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (formerly TD F 90-22.1), FATCA Form 8938, which discloses specified foreign financial assets. And beginning in 2016, there are new filing dates: Fincen Form 114 (the electronic FBAR) is now changed from June 30 to April 15. For the first time, taxpayers who must file this form will be allowed a six-month extension of time to file. For partnership returns- the new due date is March 15 (for calendar year partnerships) and the 15th day of the third month following the close of the fiscal year (for fiscal year partnerships). For corporation returns- the new due date is the 15th day of the fourth month following the close of the corporation's tax year. (see full course description)

Why Should you Attend

In April 2003, the Financial Crimes and Enforcement Network (FinCEN) delegated enforcement authority of FBAR to the IRS; therefore the IRS is now responsible for:


  • Enforcing filing requirements

  • Investigating possible civil violations

  • Assessing and collecting civil penalties

  • Issuing administrative rulings


Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which was included as part of the HIRE Act of 2010, was enacted by Congress to target non-compliance by U.S. taxpayers using foreign accounts… "While elements of the legislation have been in effect since 2011, the main elements of FATCA reporting began in 2015 and will continue to unfold over the next few years." Douglas W. O´Donnell, Commissioner of the Large and Midsize Division of IRS.
