FATCA

The enactment of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in 2010, has had a significant impact on the ability of Americans living outside the United States to open and maintain financial accounts. It has increased the burdens on reporting of financial assets held outside the United States, including those located in the jurisdiction of residence of the US citizen.

AARO is committed to bringing the real challenges of Americans living overseas to the attention of our governmental representatives. AARO advocates for simplifications to FATCA reporting that do not detract from the law’s stated goals, such as exempting financial accounts in the country of residence of the taxpayer from FATCA reporting requirements. Together with our banking committee, we work to address the challenges created by FATCA for Americans living overseas and to propose and promote more fair laws and policies.
