Do I have to report my foreign accounts?


The Foreign Bank Account Reporting (FBAR) is only required if you have a financial interest in one or more overseas financial accounts and the total value of all of the financial accounts combined was $10,000 or more during any point during the tax year.

The FBAR (FinCEN Form 114) must be filed electronically with the US Treasury Department (not the IRS) by April 15th. There is an automatic extension of 2 months for US citizens living abroad to June 15th. And this year, an additional automatic extension is available, which extends the due date to October 15th.

(Update for 2020: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS has extended the normal April 15th and June 15th deadlines. All tax filings and payments are now due July 15, 2020. However, we recommend you file as early as possible.)
