IRS Information Release 2015-116, dated Oct. 16, 2015 announced that the IRS has, since 2009, collected $8 Billion dollars through the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP). What is OVDP? It is the filing of FBAR and FATCA forms which includes the filing of FBAR Form FinCEN Form 114, Foreign Bank account reporting and Financial Accounts (formerly TD F 90-22.1) and FATCA Form 8938 which discloses specified foreign financial assets. Given the "success" of the program, the IRS has allocated significant resources to the collection of FBAR and FATCA forms, both current and delinquent. The decision to enter into the voluntary program of filing back year or delinquent FBAR and FATCA forms is a decision to be made by you, your accountant and your attorney. 
Each year the Commissioner of Internal Revenue allocates the budget and personnel to the tax areas that he and his staff determine will produce the most revenue. Hence, his focus on International Transactions, FBAR, and FATCA. 
The purpose of this webinar is to guide you to be aware that current year FBAR and FATCA forms should be filed. Many non-filings start with the failure of the return preparer to properly question the client regarding Schedule B, Question 7a: "At any time during 2015, did you have a financial interest in or signature authority over a financial account in a foreign country?" Much of the time the software program automatically answers, "No," which has been held to be fraud on the part of the taxpayer and/or the return preparer. Take CAUTION to make sure that Question 7a on Schedule B is properly answered, along with the other questions on foreign trusts. It is possible for US Persons to face penalties that exceed the value of their offshore accounts.

Why should you attend this webinar?

Congress passed the Bank Secrecy Act compliance in 1970 as the first laws to fight money laundering in the United States. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) gives the Department of Treasury authority to collect information from United States persons who have financial interests in or signature authority over financial accounts maintained with financial institutions located outside of the United States. (FinCEN) 114, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) is a part of the Bank Secrecy Act and information can be found on the IRS website as well as the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. In April, 2003, the Financial Crimes and Enforcement Network (FinCEN) delegated enforcement authority regarding the FBAR to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS information). 
The IRS is now responsible for:

Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which was included as part of the HIRE Act of 2010, was enacted by Congress to target non-compliance by U.S. taxpayers using foreign accounts and filing requirements began in 2011.  "While elements of the legislation have been in effect since 2011, the main elements of FATCA reporting began in 2015 and will continue to unfold over the next few years. As a result, this year IRS began preparation for application of the first full substantive wave of FATCA data for compliance purposes, specifically for the tax year 2014 filing population," Douglas W. O'Donnell, commissioner of the IRS's Large Business and International Division.
The US Government uses FBAR & FATCA as a tools to identify persons who may be using foreign financial accounts to circumvent United States law. Information contained in FATCA & FBARs can be used to identify or trace funds used for illicit purposes or to identify unreported income maintained or generated abroad.
