FATCA List – January 1, 2016

By |

Christmas Island has timely picked the festive holiday to join the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) list of Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) jurisdictions.

The small Indian Ocean outpost has a single financial institution reporting to the IRS.

Interestingly, the FATCA list of financial centres now exceeds the United Nations list of member nations (193) and the number of countries in the world, which stands at 195 or 196 depending on whether Taiwan is included.

Taiwan is not officially recognised as a country by most governments.

FATCA now has 182,649 compliant organisations in 227 financial jurisdictions, an increase of 5,502 over the last list published on December 1, 2015.

The next FATCA list is due for publication by the IRS on January 15, 2016.

  1. You left out the list of countries with no FATCA IGA and their banks that are not registered for FATCA.

    The website is linked from this post.

    The really despicable thing is, in IGA countries, the banks are required to register with IRS. What right has the Canadian government to force a bank with no U.S.A. assets to register with I.R.S.? The boundaries of the U.S.A. are the boundaries of the U.S.A.

    Then they classify Canadian citizens as “United States persons,” if they are so classified under U.S.A. laws. For example, under Canadian laws they are only Canadian citizens and relinquished their U.S.A. citizenship upon naturalisation, but under U.S.A. laws — which end at the border — they are still U.S.A. citizens. These are people who are no more “American” than U.S. Senator Ted Cruz was a “Canadian” when he learned in 2013 that he was still a citizen there.
