FBAR Exchange Rate

FBAR Exchange Rate: The FBAR is the FinCEN Form 114. FinCEN is the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, and the 114 Form is otherwise known as a Foreign Bank and Financial Account Form — and a major headache for U.S. Person Account Holders worldwide. Since the FinCEN is not an IRS form per se (although the IRS does enforce the filing requirements and FBAR Penalties), it is important to understand which exchange rate to use.

Generally, the Department of Treasury exchange rates are the preferred method, using the year-end rates.

Department of Treasury FBAR Exchange Rate 

As provided by FinCEN:

In the case of non-United States currency, convert the maximum account value for each account into United States dollars. Convert foreign currency by using the Treasury’s Financial Management Service rate (http://www.fiscal.treasury.gov/fsreports/rpt/treasRptRateExch/treasRptRateExch_home.htm ) for the last day of the calendar year.

If no Treasury Financial Management Service rate is available, use another verifiable exchange rate and provide the source of that rate. In valuing currency of a country that uses multiple exchange rates, use the rate that would apply if the currency in the account were converted into United States dollars on the last day of the calendar year.”

Missed the FBAR Reporting Due Date?

When a person misses the FBAR deadline for reporting, then the FBAR is considered delinquent. 

A taxpayer cannot just go back and file a late FBAR. Rather, they are required to submit to one of the Voluntary Disclosure/Tax Amnesty Programs.

Otherwise, it may be considered a quiet disclosure, which may result in significant fines and penalties including tax fraud, willfulness penalties, and an IRS special agent investigation.
