FATCA List – February 1, 2016

Lisa Smith, BA (Hons), CeFA
By

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) appears to have stopped updating the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) List of compliant foreign financial institutions.

The list is programmed for updating on the first of every month, but the latest list was posted on December 24, 2015.

The IRS has not released any information about why the list has remained unchanged.

The list is designed to advise US taxpayers and global financial institutions if a financial firm has registered as FATCA compliant with the IRS.

If a foreign financial institution is not registered or the list is not maintained, consumers and other financial firms do not know whether the firm they are dealing with is compliant.

FATCA has 182,649 compliant organisations in 228 financial jurisdictions.

The next FATCA list is due for publication by the IRS on March 1, 2016.
