Government Clarifies 2017 FBAR Due Date

Earlier this month, the government issued guidance on the due date for 2017 Foreign Bank Account Reports (FBARs).   2017 FBARs  are Due Apr. 17, 2018.  Filers who miss this deadline will be given an automatic extension until Oct. 15, 2018.  The 6-month extension does not require specific requests and will be granted each year to filers failing to meet the regular deadline.

The attorneys at the Pittsburgh law firm Williams Coulson regularly advise clients on FBAR and other foreign financial account matters, including the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program, the Streamlined Reporting Program, and the Delinquent Reporting Program.
