𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐄𝐈𝐆𝐍 𝐁𝐀𝐍𝐊 & 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐈𝐀𝐋 𝐀𝐂𝐂𝐎𝐔𝐍𝐓 𝐑𝐄𝐓𝐔𝐑𝐍𝐒 𝐃𝐔𝐄 𝟒/𝟏𝟓/𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐 (𝟒/𝟕/𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐)

April 15 is the deadline for U.S. citizens, resident aliens and any domestic legal entity to file their annual Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR). For additional information about filing deadlines, filers should look to Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) website for further information.

Filers missing the April deadlines will receive an automatic extension until October 15, 2022, to file the FBAR. They don’t need to request the extension. See FinCEN’s website for further information.

The Bank Secrecy Act requires U.S. persons to file an FBAR if they have:
• Financial interest in, signature authority or other authority over one or more accounts, such as a bank account, brokerage account, mutual fund or other financial account in a foreign country, and
• The aggregate value of all foreign financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year.

The FBAR must be filed electronically with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and is only available through the BSA E-Filing System website. Taxpayers who are unable to e-file their FBAR must contact FinCEN at 800-949-2732 (703-905-3975 if calling from outside the U.S.) or FRC@fincen.gov.
