FATCA Final Regulations For Individual Taxpayers: Form 8938 Reporting On Foreign Financial Assets
|Date / Time:
Since 2011 tax professionals have suggested changes and sought clarifications to the rules governing reporting interests in foreign financial assets. In Dec. 2014, the IRS responded to many of these suggested changes and clarifications in its final regulations.
Changes and clarifications to the 2011 temporary regs impact dual resident taxpayers, nonvested interests in property, nonvested property under IRC §83 and assets held by disregarded entities, jointly-owned assets, the definition of retirement, pension and non-retirement savings for reporting purposes, the rule relating to financial assets issued by a person organized under U.S. law, assets with no positive value, and valuation rules related to foreign currency.
The new regulations also create filing exceptions for filers of Forms 5471 and 8865.Listen as our panel discusses these changes and how they impact the filing of Form 8938 for 2014 and beyond. In addition, our panel will highlight areas in which the IRS chose not to make changes or provide clarifications and the rationale behind the IRS’ decisions.
