Program Materials

This webinar will provide tax advisers with a practical guide to Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) reporting for taxpayers holding foreign assets. The panel will define the term “specified foreign asset” that must be reported, discuss valuation issues, and offer thorough instruction on completing Form 8938, Statement of Specified Foreign Assets.

Description

FATCA continues to challenge tax advisers and compliance professionals. As information sharing agreements between the U.S. and foreign governments increase, the IRS has modified the FATCA reporting regime. Tax advisers must stay current with filing requirements and the latest developments in foreign asset information reporting to avoid steep penalties.

Form 8938 requires taxpayers to disclose ownership interests in specified offshore assets or risk monetary penalties or prosecution. The full-scale implementation of the foreign financial institution reporting regime imposed by FATCA gives the IRS even more information to reconcile taxpayer filings, increasing the Service’s ability to track foreign asset holdings and detect noncompliance.

Listen as our panel provides an in-depth discussion on what qualifies as a “specified foreign asset,” how the existing regulations impact dual resident taxpayers, and valuation rules related to foreign currency, and will give useful guidance on completing Form 8938.
