The Need for Information on FBAR
With the growth in international trade and business, more and more American citizens and foreigners living in the United States have foreign assets. For example, many foreign residents and US citizens often have overseas bank accounts in places like Switzerland, often for the most innocent of reasons. Other times, people unfortunately attempt to ‘hide’ income and assets from the Internal Revenue Service. Therefore, the IRS has recently increased its enforcement efforts of US tax law, and many people are afraid of being in non-compliance with US tax laws and regulation concerning bank and financial accounts overseas. The first step for most interested parties is to educate themselves on FBAR, at least at the level of an educated citizen. For most taxpayers, the next step is to reach out to a CPA firm that has experience in international tax.
