There’s a bill that will go into effect on July 1. It’s known as H.R. 2847 which contains FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act of 2010).
H.R. 2847 also known as HIRE (the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act) was a law passed in March 2010 which will go into effect on July 1. The bill seeks to provide payroll tax breaks and incentives for businesses to hire unemployed workers.
However, “the worry” is the FATCA piece of that bill. FATCA deals with U.S. taxpayers that hold foreign accounts overseas. It requires them to report their foreign accounts and offshore assets to the government and foreign financial institutions (banks, stock brokers, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies, trusts, etc.) are also required to report information about the ownership of overseas assets.
