FORM 8938 or FINCEN114

Comparison of Form 8938 and Foreign Bank Account Reporting (FBAR)

The Form 8938 filing requirement does not replace or otherwise affect a taxpayer’s obligation to file FinCEN Form 114 (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts).

Unlike Form 8938, the FBAR (FinCEN Form 114) is not filed with the IRS. It must be filed directly with the office of Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), a bureau of the Department of the Treasury, separate from the IRS.

Individuals and domestic entities must check the requirements and relevant reporting thresholds of each form and determine if they should file Form 8938 or FinCEN Form 114, or both.

Form 8938 and Instructions can be found at About Form 8938.

FinCen Form 114 and Instructions can be found through FinCen’s BSA E-Filing System
