Are US-based bank accounts (with BoA for example) for EU citizens somehow being reported back to EU?
Sort of a complex question, but the background info is the following - I lived 1 month in the USA as part of my MBA last year and have in that time connected two large manufacturers (one from EU and one from USA) on a pretty large joint project. For that service I got/am getting paid a commission this/next year (about $75k in total). I'm not a financial expert but it is my understanding that the company already taxed that somehow, but I was nevertheless forced to sign a few (W?) forms saying that any problems with this abroad are my responsibility. Since money is tight right now I'm tempted to just let things lie and not do anything more about it - but would/could something like this come and haunt me in the future? Would a US bank report that to the EU somehow? (I'm a EU citizen and my BoA account is tied to a EU address)
