FBAR & Form 8938 Alert!2015_flags

Do you have a foreign bank account, brokerage account, mutual fund, or trust account? All U.S. taxpayers, including U.S. entities, must report their interest in foreign financial accounts if the combined balance in the foreign accounts exceeds $10,000 during the tax year. This requirement also applies to U.S. taxpayers who have a signature authority over such an account, even if they do not own the assets. The Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) must be electronically filed with the IRS by June 30th following the tax year. No extensions are allowed! There has been a filing deferral for certain individuals with signature authority only to June 30, 2015.

Key Point: Form 8938 filing requirements (due April 15th) do not replace or otherwise affect a taxpayer’s requirement to file FBAR. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is different from FBAR, but also targets tax non-compliance by U.S. taxpayers with foreign accounts.

The 2013 reporting requirement for Form 8938, due April 15, 2014, with your 1040, is separate from the reporting requirement for FBAR. An individual may have to file both forms, and stiff, separate penalties may apply for failure to file each form, even though there is some duplication.
