IRS FATCA Certification Deadline Is December 15, 2018

The IRS implemented its online FATCA certification process and sent out messages to registered financial institutions this week. Check your registered entity accounts in the IRS FATCA portal to see if you received two messages re:

  • Certification of Compliance with the Due Diligence Requirements for Pre-existing Accounts of PFFIs (Including Reporting Model 2 FFIs)

  • Periodic Certification

The IRS sent out messages on July 23. The deadline to complete the online certifications is December 15, 2018.

For additional information re: the certification requirements see my previous blogs:
