The Treasury Department and IRS Release Updates to Final FATCA Regulations as well as Coordination Regulations
Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)
Deloitte’s point of view: A perspective on the updated FATCA and coordination regulations
On February 20, 2014, the U.S. Treasury and Internal Revenue Service released temporary regulations that revise the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) regulations (temporary FATCA regulations). Concurrently, the Treasury and IRS also released new temporary regulations coordinating the existing regulations under Chapters 3 and 61 and Section 3406 of the Internal Revenue Code (the Code) with the final and temporary FATCA regulations. These coordination regulations were issued as both temporary and proposed regulations, meaning they are in effect immediately as final regulations for a temporary period of three years, but also serve as proposed final regulations subject to commentary and revision before they can become final.
In this Point of View, we discuss some of the most significant final FATCA regulations updates and also some of the noteworthy coordinating changes to Chapters 3 and 61, and other related provisions.
- Coordination Regulations of Chapter 3, 4 and 61
- Updated FATCA Regulations (Temporary Regulations)
