About Form 8621-A, Return by a Shareholder Making Certain Late Elections To End Treatment as a Passive Foreign Investment Company


A U.S. person that is a direct or indirect shareholder of a former Passive Foreign Investment Company (PFIC) or a Section 1297(e) PFIC is treated for tax purposes as holding stock in a PFIC and therefore continues to be subject to taxation under section 1291 unless the shareholder makes a purging election under section 1298(b)(1).
