Question

Why is the country code on Form 114 different from the country code selected in the input screen?

Answer

The Treasury Department uses a different foreign country code convention than the IRS. UltraTax CS automatically converts the country code you select on Screens 1040, 114, and FrgnAcct to the correct country code on FinCEN Form 114, Foreign Bank Account Report (FBAR) for BSA E-Filing. You can verify country codes at https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#search/code/.
