Question

What is the deadline for electronically filing FinCEN Form 114 (FBAR)?

Answer

For calendar year 2017, the deadline for filing FinCEN Form 114 is April 17, 2018. FinCEN will grant filers failing to meet this deadline an automatic extension to October 15, 2018. Printed versions of BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) E-Filing forms are not for submission and will not be processed by the BSA.

You can electronically file FinCEN Form 114 via UltraTax CS, or individuals can file the form using the BSA E-Filing System instructions at http://bsaefiling.fincen.treas.gov/NoRegFBARFiler.html. FinCEN Form 114, formerly Form TD F 90-22.1, is not electronically filed with the IRS. FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network) is a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury.
