Do I need to report a foreign credit card when filling the FBAR?
You are only required to report "financial accounts." If you look at the instructions to the FBAR it defines financial account as follows:Financial Account. A financial account includes, but is not limited to, a securities, brokerage, savings, demand, checking, deposit, time deposit, or other account maintained with a financial institution (or other person performing the services of a financial institution). A financial account also includes a commodity futures or options account, an insurance policy with a cash value (such as a whole life insurance policy), an annuity policy with a cash value, and shares in a mutual fund or similar pooled fund (i.e., a fund that is available to the general public with a regular net asset value determination and regular redemptions).The above information is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal advice on any subject matter. No one, should act or refrain from acting on the basis of any content included above without seeking the appropriate legal or other professional advice on the particular facts and circumstances at issue from a licensed attorney.
A US Citizen who has lived 30 years outside of the country and did not know about FBAR. How many years should he give info for when filling tax?
A US Citizen who has lived 30 years outside of the country and did not know about FBAR. How many years should he give info for when filling tax?When I found out about FATCA and the needs of the US, I had to submit 6 years of FBAR and 3 years of income tax forms.But the requirements change and from outside the US it is impossible to keep up with the changes, which is the reason so many have not become complaint with Obama’s hunt for 1% of his residents hiding money offshore.I don’t have a US passport (no need), but friends tell me that they had not, and do not receive any notices about these new laws that affect them.
My employer filled out my W-4 without my consent. What can I do?
The employer is required to submit a W-4 with or without your consent. Mistakes and life changes will frequently make the W-4 change. You only need to file a new one with your employer.Usually someone complains or requests a change because they want less taken out. If that’s you and you have too little taken out then the IRS can require the employer to take more with or without your consent.On the other hand if you have too much taken out the the IRS usually will send you a reminder letter that you may want to have your W-4 adjusted to better reflect what actually need withheld.Either way everything will get adjusted correctly when you file your taxes.If you are upset because the employer filed the W-4 and you didn’t want any taxes taken out then too bad for you.
How do I submit FBAR if some funds have not sent out yearly statement by June?
The deadline to submit FBAR used to be in June until the year 2022. From 2022. FBAR needs to be submitted along with you tax returns (which has a deadline on 17th Apr 2018).If you don’t have yearly statement yet, then I would go with approximate figure of the highest balance carried by you for that entire year. Again, FBAR is only reporting your holdings. You don’t pay taxes based on what you declare in FBAR. You only pay taxes on the earnings you had.Disclaimer : I am not a CPA. Please treat this as general information only. Don’t rely on this info for, tax, legal or accounting advice. You should consult your own tax, legal and accounting advisors before engaging in any transaction.
How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

Why would you give up your American citizenship?
I have assisted several hundred Americans to renounce/relinquish their U.S. Citizenship for the past 27 years. For many individuals, it comes as a surprise to them that they have US citizenship and they do not know what the tax and financial ramifications are of US citizenship on themselves, their family, and their executor.The first step for many who think they may be US citizens is to confirm same and begin to understand the tax ramifications of this discovery. I cover those issues here my answer to I was born in Canada by an American mother, so am I an American citizen?Once an individual understands that they are a US citizen and that status is accompanied by very specific tax and financial filing obligations, then the individual should closely examine the pros and cons of keeping US citizenship.The first step is to contact a qualified accountant to understand the cost of bringing themselves into compliance with U.S. law. Without being in compliance, renunciation by itself is worst than useless in dealing with prior and future tax liability.I do not do compliance work, but have watched the results of countless clients who I advised to go through this step. Almost universally, the individual had vastly overestimated the cost (in professional fees and actual tax liability) of coming into compliance. This was because they were frightened by on-line forum hysteria, had assumed the imposition of an Exit Tax (Expatriation Tax) and also had not taken into account Foreign Tax Credit for the tax that they had paid to their current country of tax residence.Once one knows the actual cost of coming into compliance (accounting fees, tax, interest penalties (if any)) then one needs to add on the cost of expatriating ($2350 Expatriation Fee, possibly the imposition of Expatriation Tax if they are considered a “Covered Expatriate” after their accountant complete a draft https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/..., and then finally possibly legal fees to assist in the process).Once one has the cost of renunciation, then one needs to access the value that they place on US citizenship. Setting aside blind patriotism for a moment and looking at practical issues, the value that one places on retaining US citizenship depends greatly upon their position in life. Here are three different examples:24 Year Old US citizen graduating with a Masters of Computer Science or Finance. Unmarried and childless: Given that this person is at the start of their career, they would probably place a great emphasis on the value of their uninhibited ability to work (at least in the beginning of their career) in these fields in the US. Undoubtedly, employment opportunities are significant. They may also want to be able to pass on US citizenship to their future children,64 Year Old Canadian Citizen who was born in the US but moved to Canada when a young child: This person would essentially think of themselves as primarily Canadian. Their career and child rearing life periods are over. They may view the future avoidance of on-going compliance and hassle of remaining a US taxpayer in the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act era to be worth more than retaining a US citizenship,45 Year Old High Net Worth Individual Venture Capitalist: This person is continually weighing the value of being in the US for business versus the on-going and future (estate) tax liability. This person may not be ready to expatriate at this time, but is prudently getting a Back Up Plan in place to allow them to execute a renunciation if and when they deem appropriate for them. (Peter Thiel, Trump Adviser, Has a Backup Country: New Zealand, How Today’s Rich Families Are Different, Lesperance & Associates " Could the loss of carried interest double your tax bill?)Once an individual has determined that for themselves, compliance and renunciation is appropriate, then they have to decide if it is worthwhile to retain legal counsel to assist or try and do it themselves. One might want to retain legal counsel if there is a matter of required co-ordination with tax counsel and accountants because one is subject to the Expatriation Tax Regime. In addition, there is sometimes a co-ordination and timing issue for setting up the Renunciation Interview. Finally, some individuals determine it worthwhile to have an experienced advisor make sure that the paperwork is properly completed and that they are properly prepared for the interview questions and future US border official questions. Those who retain counsel are individuals who believe that the cost of fees is minimal compared to the cost of not doing their expatriation and departure from the US tax system properly.Whether retaining counsel or not, the renouncing individual or their counsel, needs to schedule an appointment with US Citizen Services at a US mission outside of the US. At that interview, a US Conofficial will go through various paperwork. Although many missions have their own specific additional forms, they all must complete this documentation (7 FAM 1260 RENUNCIATION OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP ABROAD).Once the renunciation interview is completed at the US mission, then the individual is no longer a US citizen under US law. However, in order to also get out of the US tax system, it is necessary for them to file the IRS form 8854. A significant portion of which is an attestation that they are fully up to date and compliant with their US tax obligations. They will also need to file a terminal US tax return and appropriate filings such as Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) for the short year from January 1st to their date of renunciation.The final step in the process is that the US Mission will forward the documentation that it receives to the State Department in Washington. Officials there will review the material to ensure that the renunciation was properly completed. If so, then they will issue a Certificate of Loss of Nationality (https://eforms.state.gov/Forms/d...) confirming that the individual ceased to be a US Citizen as of the expatriation interview date.Note: Relinquishment of US Citizenship: In certain specific cases, an individual can demonstrate both a potentially relinquishing act and an intention to relinquish US citizenship (Advice about Possible Loss of U.S. Nationality and Dual Nationality). If the individual meets this standard then they might be able to claim that they lost their US citizenship (and therefore basis for tax liability) at a much earlier date. In these types of cases it is definitely worth retaining experienced counsel to determine a) if you have a proper potentially successful case, and b) correctly file a relinquishment claim. Relinquishment applications take much longer to process (and therefore determine if successful) but may have great financial value if possible and every effort is made toward success.Unfortunately, I have seen many cases filed which were either weak or dead at the outset or poorly documented. The individual was often under the mistaken belief that they had lost their US citizenship (and US tax liability) until their application was ultimately rejected. Given that such cases can take a minimum of a year and often 2 or more years to be reviewed and assessed, it is critical to know at the outset whether an application is potentially viable.
