Background

This document contains an amendment to the Income Tax Regulations (26 CFR part 1) under section 1471 through 1474 of the Internal Revenue Code that were published in final and temporary regulations in TD 9657. Sections 1471 through 1474 were added to the Code, as Chapter 4 of Subtitle A, by the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111-147, 124 Stat. 71). The temporary regulation that is the subject of this correcting amendment is § 1.1471-4T. This correcting amendment affects FFIs that have entered into an agreement with the IRS to obtain status as a participating FFI and to, among other things, report certain information with respect to U.S. accounts that they maintain.

Need for Correction

As published, the temporary regulations contain an error that is misleading with respect to the reporting requirements of participating FFIs (as defined in § 1.1471-1(b)(91)) maintaining U.S. accounts during the 2014 calendar year. This correcting amendment modifies the last date in the first sentence in § 1.1471-4T(d)(7)(iv)(B) to correct the relevant provision to meet its intended purpose.
