General Instructions

Form TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (the “FBAR”), is used to report a financial interest in or signature authority over a foreign financial account. The FBAR must be received by the Department of the Treasury on or before June 30th of the year immediately following the calendar year being reported. The June 30th filing date may not be extended.

Who Must File an FBAR. A United States person that has a financial interest in or signature authority over foreign financial accounts must file an FBAR if the aggregate value of the foreign financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year. See General Definitions, to determine who is a United States person.

General Definitions

Financial Account. A financial account includes, but is not limited to, a securities, brokerage, savings, demand, checking, deposit, time deposit, or other account maintained with a financial institution (or other person performing the services of a financial institution). A financial account also includes a commodity futures or options account, an insurance policy with a cash value (such as a whole life insurance policy), an annuity policy with a cash value, and shares in a mutual fund or similar pooled fund (i.e., a fund that is available to the general public with a regular net asset value determination and regular redemptions).

Foreign Financial Account. A foreign financial account is a financial account located outside of the United States. For example, an account maintained with a branch of a United States bank that is physically located outside of the United States is a foreign financial account. An account maintained with a branch of a foreign bank that is physically located in the United States is not a foreign financial account.

Financial Interest. A United States person has a financial interest in a foreign financial account for which:

(1)the United States person is the owner of record or holder of legal title, regardless of whether the account is maintained for the benefit of the United States person or for the benefit of another person; or

(2)the owner of record or holder of legal title is one of the following:

(a)An agent, nominee, attorney, or a person acting in some other capacity on behalf of the United States person with respect to the account;

(b)A corporation in which the United States person owns directly or indirectly: (i) more than 50 percent of the total value of shares of stock or (ii) more than 50 percent of the voting power of all shares of stock;

(c)A partnership in which the United States person owns directly or indirectly: (i) an interest in more than 50 percent of the partnership's profits (e.g., distributive share of partnership income taking into account any special allocation agreement) or (ii) an interest in more than 50 percent of the partnership capital;

(d)A trust of which the United States person: (i) is the trust grantor and (ii) has an ownership interest in the trust for United States federal tax purposes. See 26 U.S.C. sections 671-679 to determine if a grantor has an ownership interest in a trust;

(e)A trust in which the United States person has a greater than 50 percent present beneficial interest in the assets or income of the trust for the calendar year; or

(f)Any other entity in which the United States person owns directly or indirectly more than 50 percent of the voting power, total value of equity interest or assets, or interest in profits.

Person. A person means an individual and legal entities including, but not limited to, a limited liability company, corporation, partnership, trust, and estate.

Signature Authority. Signature authority is the authority of an individual (alone or in conjunction with another individual) to control the disposition of assets held in a foreign financial account by direct communication (whether in writing or otherwise) to the bank or other financial institution that maintains the financial account. See Exceptions, Signature Authority.

United States. For FBAR purposes, the United States includes the States, the District of Columbia, all United States territories and possessions (e.g., American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the United States Virgin Islands), and the Indian lands as defined in the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

The FBAR is not considered filed until it is received by the Department of the Treasury in Detroit, MI.

No Extension of Time to File. There is no extension of time available for filing an FBAR. Extensions of time to file federal tax returns do NOT extend the time for filing an FBAR. If a delinquent FBAR is filed, attach a statement explaining the reason for the late filing.

Explanations for Specific Items

Part I — Filer Information

Item 1. The FBAR is an annual report. Enter the calendar year being reported. If amending a previously filed FBAR, check the “Amended” box.

Item 2. Check the box that describes the filer. Check only one box. Individuals reporting only signature authority, check box “a”. If filing a consolidated FBAR, check box “d”. To determine if a consolidated FBAR can be filed, see Part V. If the type of filer is not listed in boxes “a” through “c”, check box “e”, and enter the type of filer. Persons that should check box “e” include, but are not limited to, trusts, estates, limited liability companies, and tax-exempt entities (even if the entity is organized as a corporation). A disregarded entity must check box “e”, and enter the type of entity followed by “(D.E.)”. For example, a limited liability company that is disregarded for United States federal tax purposes would enter “limited liability company (D.E.)”.

Item 3. Provide the filer's United States taxpayer identification number. Generally, this is the filer's United States social security number (SSN), United States individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or employer identification number (EIN). Throughout the FBAR, numbers should be entered with no spaces, dashes, or other punctuation. If the filer does NOT have a United States taxpayer identification number, complete Item 4.

Item 4. Complete Item 4 only if the filer does NOT have a United States taxpayer identification number. Item 4 requires the filer to provide information from an official foreign government document to verify the filer's nationality or residence. Enter the document number followed by the country of issuance, check the appropriate type of document, and if “other” is checked, provide the type of document.

Item 5. If the filer is an individual, enter the filer's date of birth, using the month, day, and year convention.

Items 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. Enter the filer's address. An individual residing in the United States must enter the street address of the individual's United States residence, not a post office box. An individual residing outside the United States must enter the individual's United States mailing address. If the individual does not have a United States mailing address, the individual must enter a foreign residence address. An entity must enter its United States mailing address. If the entity does not have a United States mailing address, the entity must enter its foreign mailing address.

Item 14. If the filer has a financial interest in 25 or more foreign financial accounts, check “Yes” and enter the number of accounts. Do not complete Part II or Part III of the FBAR. If filing a consolidated FBAR, only complete Part V, Items 34-42, for each United States entity included in the consolidated FBAR.

Note. If the filer has signature authority over 25 or more foreign financial accounts, only complete Part IV, Items 34-43, for each person for which the filer has signature authority, and check “No” in Part I, Item 14.

Filers must comply with applicable recording keeping requirements. See Record Keeping Requirements.

Item 15. Determining Maximum Account Value.

Step 1. Determine the maximum value of each account (in the currency of that account) during the calendar year being reported. The maximum value of an account is a reasonable approximation of the greatest value of currency or nonmonetary assets in the account during the calendar year. Periodic account statements may be relied on to determine the maximum value of the account, provided that the statements fairly reflect the maximum account value during the calendar year. For Item 15, if the filer had a financial interest in more than one account, each account must be valued separately.

Step 2. In the case of non-United States currency, convert the maximum account value for each account into United States dollars. Convert foreign currency by using the Treasury's Financial Management Service rate (this rate may be found at www.fms.treas.gov) from the last day of the calendar year. If no Treasury Financial Management Service rate is available, use another verifiable exchange rate and provide the source of that rate. In valuing currency of a country that uses multiple exchange rates, use the rate that would apply if the currency in the account were converted into United States dollars on the last day of the calendar year.

If the aggregate of the maximum account values exceeds $10,000, an FBAR must be filed. An FBAR is not required to be filed if the person did not have $10,000 of aggregate value in foreign financial accounts at any time during the calendar year.

For United States persons with a financial interest in or signature authority over fewer than 25 accounts that are unable to determine if the aggregate maximum account values of the accounts exceeded $10,000 at any time during the calendar year, complete Part II, III, IV, or V, as appropriate, for each of these accounts and enter “value unknown” in Item 15.

Item 16. Indicate the type of account. Check only one box. If “Other” is selected, describe the account.

Item 17. Provide the name of the financial institution with which the account is held.

Item 18. Provide the account number that the financial institution uses to designate the account.

Items 19-23. Provide the complete mailing address of the financial institution where the account is located. If the foreign address does not include a state (e.g., province) or postal code, leave the box(es) blank.

Part III — Information on Financial Account(s) Owned Jointly

Enter information in the applicable parts of the form only. Number the pages used, and mail only those pages. If there is not enough space to provide all account information, copy and complete additional pages of the required Part as necessary.

For Items 15-23, see Part II. Each joint owner must report the entire value of the account as determined under Item 15.

Item 24. Enter the number of joint owners for the account. If the exact number is not known, provide an estimate. Do not count the filer when determining the number of joint owners.

Items 25-33. Use the identifying information of the principal joint owner (excluding the filer) to complete Items 25-33. Leave blank items for which no information is available. If the filer's spouse has an interest in a jointly owned account, the filer's spouse is the principal joint owner. Enter “(spouse)” on line 26 after the last name of the joint spousal owner. See Exceptions, Certain Accounts Jointly Owned by Spouses, to determine if the filer's spouse is required to independently report the jointly owned accounts.

Part IV — Information on Financial Account(s) Where Filer has Signature Authority but No Financial Interest in the Account(s)

Enter information in the applicable parts of the form only. Number the pages used, and mail only those pages.

Do not use any attachments unless otherwise specified in the instructions.

25 or More Foreign Financial Accounts. Filers with signature authority over 25 or more foreign financial accounts must complete only Items

34-43 for each person on whose behalf the filer has signature authority.

Modified Reporting for United States Persons Residing and Employed Outside of the United States. A United States person who

(1)resides outside of the United States, (2) is an officer or employee of an employer who is physically located outside of the United States, and

(3)has signature authority over a foreign financial account that is owned or maintained by the individual's employer should only complete Part I and Part IV, Items 34-43 of the FBAR. Part IV, Items 34-43 should only be completed one time with information about the individual's employer.

For Items 15-23, see Part II.

If there is more than one owner of the account for which the individual has signature authority, provide the information in Items 34-42 for the principal joint owner (excluding the filer). If account information is completed for more than one account of the same owner, identify the owner only once and write “Same Owner” in Item 34 for the succeeding accounts with the same owner.

Item 43. Enter filer's title for the position that provides signature authority (e.g., treasurer).

Part V — Information on Financial Account(s) Where Filer Is Filing a Consolidated Report

Do not use any attachments unless otherwise specified in the instructions.

Who Can File a Consolidated FBAR. An entity that is a United States person that owns directly or indirectly a greater than 50 percent interest in another entity that is required to file an FBAR is permitted to file a consolidated FBAR on behalf of itself and such other entity. Check box “d” in Part I, Item 2 and complete Part V.

An individual must leave “Filer's Title” blank, unless the individual is filing an FBAR due to the individual's signature authority. If an individual is filing because the individual has signature authority over a foreign financial account, the individual should enter the title upon which his or her authority is based in Item 45.

A spouse included as a joint owner, who does not file a separate FBAR in accordance with the instructions in Part III, must also sign the FBAR (in Item 44) for the jointly owned accounts. See the instructions for Part III.

Penalties

A person who is required to file an FBAR and fails to properly file may be subject to a civil penalty not to exceed $10,000 per violation.
