From Accounting Today, Michael Cohn reports that the IRS Issues FATCA Guidance on Reporting Interest Paid to non resident Aliens
The Internal Revenue Service has issued final regulations and guidance on reporting interest paid to nonresident aliens, along with a revenue procedure listing the countries with which the U.S. has a bilateral exchange of information agreement.
So, the speculation that DATCA would not survive might be pre-mature.
The last brick in the foundation of the global Fatca (GATCA) is being cemented in place.
FATCA begets DATCA begets GATCA
I have posted this response. You all are welcome to join in..
Well Michael, I see that DATCA is still not dead. Will be interested to see what the Congressman like Rubio,Boustany,Ron Paul,and the entire Florida delegation that were opposed to this will do. Do I hear “nothing”?
Obviously their letters of protest have had no effect on the IRS or the administration.
As we know, the IRS needs this to make the FATCA reciprocal Tax exchange regime work! In their statements now they are no longer hiding the objective as they were last year. They make it clear that it key to their strategy to overcome FATCA opposition around the world. A global FATCA is being created, and you are one of first and few to know.
