Thx for the link.

Back to the topic I say that annual FATCA report (in my case a NIL form 8966) must be given in electronic format (XML file). Fortunately here in Finland our local tax authority will give an example of this file (helps a lot to create it) for free and you can send this file manually through them thanks to IGA agreement between the countries. IRS registration for GIIN ID still needed.

If I recall correctly, the IRS had me download a PDF file and then "submit" the PDF form fields electronically, and sign electronically. I remember this, because it forced me to install Adobe Acrobat instead of using a much better third-party PDF viewer, because of the electronic submission stuff.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Definitely completely different than what I used, as all of my stuff came from the IRS directly.

I filled an FBAR, which is separate from your tax return, that discloses your foreign holdings. That is the "auto submit PDF" I was talking about.

The FATCA reporting is a joint venture between your banking institutions and your tax return (part III on Schedule B), with your responsibility being to report it on your return (schedule B) and the financial institution has a separate responsibility to make annual reports on behalf of their customers to the IRS (this is why some institutions have a no-American policy).

I am not an accountant.

...

Yes that is in the format what is defined by the IRS. Our local tax authority is only a "pipe" for this file. I could send this document directly to the IRS also (needs separate registration for this) but it is a bit easier for me to send it through the Finnish Tax authority by the same time I am sending other required annual reports for them.
