FATCA Essentials

The Compliance Challenge Is On

On Jan. 17, 2013, the U.S. Treasury Department and IRS released final regulations for the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). FATCA was enacted into law on March 18, 2010, to address the U.S. government's perception of widespread tax evasion by U.S. taxpayers that hold investments offshore.
