The IRS and US Treasury are pushing ahead with mandatory electronic filing of FBARS from 1 July 2013.

For anyone unable to use a computer to deal with this mandatory obligation a costly international phone call to the FinCEN Regulatory Helpline at 800-949-2732 will be the only way to request an exemption.

The following was posted by the IRS yesterday: http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Charitable-Organizations/EO-Update,-June-5,-2013

“Paper filings of TD F 90-22.1, Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR), for 2012 are due June 30.

Effective July 1, 2013, filers must electronically file the FBAR through the BSA E-File System. If unable to E-file, filers may contact the FinCEN Regulatory Helpline at 800-949-2732 to request an exemption.

Help in completing the FBAR is available Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time, at (866) 270-0733 (toll-free inside the U.S.) or (313) 234-6146 (not toll-free, for callers outside the U.S.). Questions regarding the FBAR can be sent to [email protected]. Filers residing abroad may also contact U.S. embassies and consulates for assistance.

For E-Filing system questions, call the FinCEN E-Filing Help Desk at (866) 346-9478, option 1 (M-F, 8-6 Eastern time).”
