Foreign Bank Account Report

A few years ago the Foreign Bank Accounts (FBAR) Report changed from using the TD F 90-22.1 paper form to the online FinCEN Form 114. It is used to report financial interest in or signature authority over foreign financial accounts and is an information return only, so there will be no information on the filer’s tax liability.

Who must file the FinCEN Form 114?

Any United States citizen or GreenCard holder, who has authority or signature authority of any foreign financial accounts that have an aggregate of $10,000 during any point of the calendar year.  This is done by taking the highest value in each financial account and aggregating them. The deadline for online submission is April 15th plus the extensions that taxpayer might have requested to the IRS for his regular Form 1040. Now the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network accepts all extensions offered by the IRS for your Tax Return.

Are there penalties for not filing the FinCEN Form 114?

Yes, there are very harsh penalties for not filing the FinCEN.  A person who is required to file an FBAR and fails to properly file may be subject to a civil penalty of $10,000 per violation.
