No – the FBAR deadline has changed. Effective in 2017 and future years, the FBAR filing deadline will be the same as your 1040 tax return. This means your FBAR is due on April 15th each year (April 18th in 2017), unless you live abroad, then your deadline is June 15th.
An automatic extension to October 15th will be available each year moving forward for filers who fail to file by the FBAR filing deadline of April 15th. As an added benefit, no additional paperwork is required to receive this extension.
