    FBAR Reporting

  17. The reporting of foreign bank and financial accounts (FBAR) has changed for 2014  and is more time consuming.
  18. If you have a financial interest in or signature authority over a foreign financial account, including a bank account, brokerage account, mutual fund, trust, or other type of foreign financial account, exceeding certain thresholds, the Bank Secrecy Act will require you to report the account yearly to the Internal Revenue Service.  FinCEN Form 114 supersedes TD F 90-22.1 (the FBAR form that was used in prior years) and is only available online through the BSA E-Filing System website.

    This is a labor-some process. The accounts will no longer carry-forward on software and need to be individually entered for each account. Nowadays bank account reporting takes longer than the tax returns.
