Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts

You must tell the U.S. Treasury if you have both of these:

  • Financial interest in or authority over any foreign accounts
  • Foreign accounts that total more than $10,000 at any time in the year

To report the foreign accounts, complete Form TD F 90-22.1: Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts. Submit this form separate from your return by June 30 of each year.

After June 30, 2013, you must e-file Form TD F 90-22.1. If you're required to file the form but fail to do so without reasonable cause, you might be charged a penalty. The penalty could be up to $10,000. If you willfully fail to file, the penalty increases to the greater of:

  • $100,000
  • 50% of the balance of the account

You might also be charged with criminal penalties.
