Please be informed that according to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), if you are a U.S. person (a U.S. citizen or resident individual or entity), no matter where you live, you are obliged to report your financial accounts held outside of the United States. FATCA is a United States federal law that requires United States persons, including individuals who live outside the United States, to report their financial accounts held outside of the United States, and requires foreign financial institutions to report to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) about their U.S. clients. Congress enacted FATCA to make it more difficult for U.S. taxpayers to conceal assets held in offshore accounts and shell corporations, and thus to recoup federal tax revenues. The FATCA is a portion of the 2010 Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act.
