Action Needed to Comply with Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act Proposed Regulations

Florida taxpayers must take affirmative actions to comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Originally enacted in 2010, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act ("FATCA") targets non-compliance by U.S. taxpayers using foreign accounts. On February 8, 2012, the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service issued proposed withholding and reporting regulations for the next major phase of FATCA.

The IRS's 2009 and 2011 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiatives ("OVDI") have been very successful in terms of having taxpayers come forward to report their offshore accounts. One of the reasons so many have come forward is that within the past few years, the IRS and Department of Justice have been unyielding in their enforcement efforts and continue their investigations into non-U.S. banks that assisted U.S. taxpayers in hiding assets from the IRS.
