According to the U.S. Dept. of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the due date for filing Reports of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) for foreign financial accounts has changed from June 30 to April 15. The new FBAR due date now coincides with the Federal income tax filing deadline. Filers who do not meet the FBAR annual due date of April 15 will now receive an automatic extension to October 15 each year – requests for an extension are not required.
NOTE: Because this year’s Federal income tax due date is April 18, 2017, the due date for FBAR filings for foreign financial accounts maintained during calendar year 2016 will be the same date. Any automatic extensions will be granted to October 16, 2017 because October 15 falls on a Sunday.
