FATCA filing requirements of certain foreign financial institutions (FFIs).    Beginning in 2014, an FFI with a chapter 4 requirement to report a U.S. account maintained by the FFI that is held by a specified U.S. person may satisfy this requirement by reporting on Form(s) 1099 under the election described in Regulations section 1.1471-4(d)(5)(i)(A). Additionally, a U.S. payor may satisfy its chapter 4 requirement to report such a U.S. account by reporting on Form(s) 1099. See Regulations section 1.1471-4(d)(2)(iii)(A). Forms 1099-INT and 1099-OID are among the Forms 1099 used for such purpose. New check boxes were added to Forms 1099-INT and 1099-OID to identify an FFI filing this form to satisfy its chapter 4 reporting requirement.
