Expanded Scope of Requirement to Report Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts


Every U.S. person that has an interest in or authority over a foreign financial account must annually file Form TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts ("FBAR") by June 30. In October 2008, the U.S. Treasury revised the FBAR to expand the list of persons obligated to file and required more detailed reporting of information concerning foreign financial accounts. The revisions were effective January 1, 2009, and any individual with foreign accounts or businesses with foreign accounts for general investment or day-to-day purposes should be aware of the expanded reporting requirements.
