IRS Extends FATCA RO Certification Deadline
The IRS announced today that it is granting an automatic extension of time to submit FATCA Responsible Officer (RO) certifications for an entity with a certification due date of July 1, 2020. The new deadline is December 15, 2020. It is not necessary to file a request for an extension of time with the IRS.
If you have an entity with a July 1, 2020 RO certification deadline, your individual Financial Institution account in the IRS FATCA portal will now indicate the new December 15, 2020 deadline.
