Do you have a financial interest in or signature authority over a foreign financial account, whether a bank account, brokerage account, mutual fund or a Trust? If yes, US laws require you to report the account yearly to the Internal Revenue Service by filing Form TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR).
Missed FBAR filing can lead to huge civil penalty, an amount equal to the greater of $100,000 or 50 percent of the account balance for each violation each year, potentially accruing to the greater of $800,000 or 400 percent of each account balance over a six year period apart from criminal penalty, the fraud penalty and foreign information return penalties.
