FBAR Update: Mastering FinCen Form 114, New Deadlines, Extension, Penalty Resolution And Waiver Provisions
|Date / Time:
This webinar provides tax advisors with the tools necessary to navigate the Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) filing requirements, including the newly-announced extension and first-time penalty waiver requests.
It also offers detailed guidance on how to accurately complete and file an FBAR (FinCen Form 114).
NOTE: Beginning with the 2016 tax filing year, the deadline for filing the FBAR has changed from June 30th to April 15th to align the FBAR with the filing deadline for individual income tax returns. For most individual taxpayers, this will accelerate the filing process.
In addition to altering the filing deadlines, the new regulations provide both U.S. and non-U.S. resident taxpayers with a mechanism for obtaining a six-month filing extension. Perhaps the most important of the changes is the first-time filer penalty relief for taxpayers who fail to timely file the FBAR or request an extension.
The FBAR remains an often-complex reporting obligation, and the IRS will cross-reference FBAR information with other tax filings, as well as information disclosures from other sources such as foreign financial institutions, making failure to accurately report assets on the FBAR potentially very costly for U.S. taxpayers, even with the extension and penalty relief provisions of the new regulations.
Listen as our experienced panel provides a comprehensive guide to completing the FBAR forms, as well as a summary of relevant changes in disclosure requirements. Coverage includes:
- What triggers FBAR filing requirements
- Entity ownership
- $10,000 threshold
- When are a company’s officers personally responsible?
- Information that must be reported on FBAR
- Ownership accounts, accounts with signature authority, combined report accounts
- Form 8938 and associated IRS forms for foreign ownership/transactions
- Electronic filing of FBAR
- Restrictions of the electronic filing system
- Restrictions on preparer activity
- Update on enforcement and new developments
- New changes to deadlines and penalty relief
- Responding to audits and examinations
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- When can corporate officers’ stake in foreign accounts trigger reporting responsibilities?
- What is the latest in IRS and FinCEN enforcement activity?
- What are the terms of the IRS voluntary disclosure program for companies required to file FBAR?
- How do Form 8938 filing requirements intersect with FBAR?
Upon completing this seminar you will be fully briefed on the 2016 changes to the FBAR (FinCen Form 114) filing deadlines, penalty waiver provisions, and form requirements. You will know the rules for determining what accounts must be reported, you will see illustrations of a completed FBAR form, and you will know how to request an extension, as well as a penalty waiver request.
