U.S. Department Of Treasury: FATCA Agreements With Other Countries



FATCA Agreements Around The World

FATCA requires foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to report to the IRS information about financial accounts held by U.S. taxpayers, or by foreign entities in which U.S. taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest. FFIs are encouraged to either directly register with the IRS to comply with the FATCA regulations (and FFI agreement, if applicable) or comply with the FATCA Intergovernmental Agreements (IGA) treated as in effect in their jurisdictions.  For access to the FATCA regulations and administrative guidance related to FATCA and to learn about taxpayer obligations please visit the IRS on FATCA.

Scroll down below the Table of FATCA Agreements and Understandings in Effect by Jurisdiction to find a list of Model Intergovernmental Agreements and assorted additional statements related to FATCA and its implementation.

One thought on “U.S. Department Of Treasury: FATCA Agreements With Other Countries

  1. Avatar Ron Henderson says:

    FATCA was supposed to be reciprocal. Any idea when the US might hold up it’s end of the deal and require all its domestic banks to ask their customers about other citizenship or tax residency?

    Meanwhile, some good news. The EU might finally be slowly waking up to the fact that this is a one-way street and very harmful to its own citizens who happen to be Accidental Americans. And in other countries that shall remain nameless, enforcement is so lax that there is no checking of birthplace or verification of responses to FATCA questions, so anyone who’s been adequately forewarned knows to not disclose US citizenship if they don’t wish to subject themselves to reporting or limitations on services offered.
