FACTS MATTER! TAXPAYERS CAN WIN WILLFUL FAILURE TO FILE FBAR CASES IN COURT!

Under United States law an annual reporting and disclosure responsibility is placed on any United States person with any financial interest in or signatory authority over, a bank, brokerage, stock, or any other financial account in a foreign country.  See 31 U.S.C. Sec. 5314(a) and regulation 31 C.F.R. Sec. 1010.350(a).  The Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”), U.S.C. Sec. 5311, et seq., requires U.S. persons to keep records and file reports with respect to their foreign bank account holdings.

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT OPINED THAT THE REPORT OF FOREIGN BANK AND FINANCIAL ACCOUNTS MAXIMUM NONWILLFUL VIOLATION PENALTY IS $10,000 PER FBAR NOT PER ACCOUNT

The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and its implementing regulations require certain individuals to file annual reports with the federal government about their foreign bank accounts. The statute imposes a maximum $10,000 penalty for nonwillful violations of the law. But recently a question has arisen in the U.S. Supreme Court. Does someone who fails to file a timely or accurate annual report commit a single violation subject to a single $10,000 penalty? Or does that person commit separate violations and incur different $10,000 penalties for each account not properly recorded within a single report?

Federal tax laws treat REITs primarily as pass-through entities; similarly, to, but to a lesser extent, the way federal tax laws treat partnerships, where the majority of the increments in wealth associated with REITs are passed-through to the beneficial owners and taxed presumably at the more favorable tax rates of the individual beneficial owners of the REIT.
