#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Do I need to report interest on an account in a foreign country?

If you have accounts or trusts in a foreign country, you must complete Form 1040 Schedule B. Schedule B, part III asks questions to determine whether you may need to report additional information to the U.S. government about your foreign interests.

US citizens and residents who have interests in foreign accounts must file FinCen Form 114 (also known as FBAR) if the total value of all your foreign accounts exceeded $10,000 at any time during the calendar year. The FBAR is filed separately from your tax return.

You can find out when and how to file this form on the IRS website.
