FBAR Deadlines Not as Close as You Think: New Tax Bill's Language Points to 2017 as Likely Timetable

August 2015

Thank you for your interest in the 5th Annual IRS Hot Topic Seminar held in Jerusalem in July. In continuing our efforts to provide timely and extremely important updates on tax matters affecting U.S. citizens and green card holders living abroad, please note that on Friday, July 31, 2015 (Tu B'av) major changes were made to filing dates for various entities including certain partnerships, C corporations and FBAR documents. While you may have received tax alerts from other professionals implying that these new deadlines especially for FBAR's take effect as of April 15, 2016, we respectfully disagree. We believe that the new due dates set forth below take effect for returns that will be due primarily in 2017.
