Event Synopsis:

As the United States continues to increase its enforcement efforts surrounding the activities of US taxpayers with offshore assets, informational reporting has increased in complexity and administrative burden. Tax practitioners must stay abreast of the latest requirements.

For many years the Bank Secrecy Act has required certain taxpayers to report foreign bank and financial accounts to the U.S. government on Form TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, (the “FBAR”). However, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requires an additional annual reporting requirement under IRC Section 6038D for foreign financial assets on IRS Form 8938.

This webcast will assist the tax practitioner/preparer in navigating these increasingly difficult waters, including:

• An overview of the FBAR and the TD F 90-22.1
• An overview of the IRS Form 8938 and IRC §6038D
• A compare and contrast of the two forms
• An outline of the penalties for failure to comply (for the taxpayer and, the preparer)
• An overview of the new Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program recently announced by the IRS
