Course Description

LATEST WEBINAR ON FBAR & FATCA UPDATES

For much of the past decade, the Internal Revenue Service has focused significant attention on offshore bank accounts and the obligation of U.S. taxpayers to report such accounts on the FBAR (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts) form. The FBAR rules require taxpayers to annually report whether they have a financial interest in, or signature or other authority over, foreign bank accounts, and impose substantial civil and criminal penalties for failing to do so. 

In addition, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) now requires individuals and certain entities to annually disclose specified foreign financial assets on Form 8938. The information reporting requirements of FATCA also require foreign banks and financial institutions to annually disclose to the IRS information about their U.S. customers. The IRS now has access to far more information regarding the offshore activities of U.S. taxpayers than ever, and non-compliant U.S. taxpayers face significant risks.

Major Topics Covered : 

  • Obligation to Report Worldwide Income
  • The Carrot: Voluntary Disclosure Programs
  • Criminal Enforcement Efforts Against Individuals
  • Criminal Enforcement Actions Against Banks
  • Swiss Bank Program
  • United States v. Dusko Bruer
  • International Audit Campaigns
  • Civil Enforcement Efforts
  • Foreign Bank Accounting Reporting
  • Who is required to file an FBAR?
  • FBAR Penalties for Non-Compliance
Webinar attendees will review the FBAR reporting regime for foreign bank accounts, explore the relatively new FATCA foreign asset reporting rules, learn of IRS enforcement efforts in this area, and study options for curing non-compliance. All CPAs, Accountants, Tax Professionals helping or advising clients or companies on International Taxes shall attend this insightful 1 hour free webinar with full or case studies and examples  from Expert Tax Attorney Mattew D. Lee

Learning objectives

  • To identify the new FATCA foreign asset reporting rules

    The webinar on FBAR and FATCA Reporting was very useful to deal with my clients and clear their questions. The interesting part for me was the options available for undisclosed foreign assets - The Streamline Filing Procedure and OVDP.

Excellent presentation. Would enjoy an intermediate course, delving deeper into the complexities of the FBAR and FATC, perhaps with examples.Superb. The webinar was very informative and useful for all accountants.

Today's topic touched some penalties information which was very important to learn. This is an excellent course and I recommend all tax preparers take this class to learn the rules. There are a lot of clients that do have bank accounts outside the US.
