Description:

For the past three years, much attention has been focused on offshore bank accounts and the obligation of U.S. taxpayers to report such accounts on the much-heralded Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts or 'FBAR' form. The FBAR rules require taxpayers to annually report whether they have a financial interest in, or signature or other authority over, foreign bank accounts, and impose substantial civil and criminal penalties for failing to do so. On the heels of the U.S. government's global crackdown on the use of secret foreign bank accounts, the Internal Revenue Service has recently imposed additional reporting requirements that will obligate U.S. taxpayers to annually disclose specified foreign financial assets when they file their personal income tax returns for 2011 and thereafter. The new foreign asset reporting rules, which are part of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), signal a new era in foreign asset reporting by U.S. taxpayers, and significantly expand the disclosure requirements in scope and type well beyond what was previously required to be reported on the FBAR form. This live audio conference will explore the new FATCA foreign asset reporting rules, provide an update on the existing FBAR reporting regime for foreign bank accounts, and discuss the U.S. government's enforcement efforts (both criminal and civil) in this area and the likely direction of future enforcement activity.

Learning Objectives:

-You will be able to discuss the overview of FBAR and FATCA Rules.
-You will be able to review IRS Form 8938.
-You will be able to explain penalties for nonfiling.
-You will be able to define what foreign assets are required to be reported.

    About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

    Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

    The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

    And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

    Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
