IR-2007-116, June 13, 2007
WASHINGTON — Taxpayers have an additional two days this year, until July 2, 2007, to file the Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR), Form TD F 90-22.1, the Internal Revenue Service announced today.
The deadline for FBAR forms is June 30, 2007. But because June 30 falls on a Saturday, the IRS is allowing taxpayers to file by July 2.
FBAR information returns for the 2006 calendar year must be filed with the U.S. Department of Treasury, P.O. Box 32621, Detroit, Mich., 48232-0621. The address for commercial delivery is: U.S. Department of Treasury, Currency Transaction Reporting, 985 Michigan Avenue, Detroit, Mich., 48226.
The FBAR form is not available for electronic filing, but many income tax software packages can prepare a printed copy. FBAR forms and instructions are also available on this Web site or FinCEN Web site and from the IRS via telephone at 1-800-829-3676.
The FBAR form is required for each U.S. person who has a financial interest in, or signature authority, or other authority, over any financial accounts, including bank, securities or other types of financial accounts, in a foreign country, if the aggregate value of these financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year.
Taxpayers who need assistance completing Form TD F 90-22.1 can contact the IRS by telephone at 1-800-800-2877, option 2, or via email at FBARquestions@irs.gov.
