Apparently the deadline is June 30, what is the deadline for a foreigner arrived and working under visa such as H1B?

Is it the first June 30 after I arrive? Or first June 30 after I file my taxes? Or first June 30 after I file my taxes as "resident" (I arrived on October so I filed as nonresident last year )?

The deadline for each year is June 30th of the next year. So if you became US resident in 2014 - the first FBAR has to be filed by June 30th, 2015. As with tax returns, FBAR is filed for the previous calendar year.

  • Does "US resident" mean resident for tax purpose? If I arrive in October 2013, but filed tax as a nonresident (in 2014) for the 2013 tax year, does it mean I have to file FBAR in 2014 or 2015? – sbaba Jun 26 '14 at 7:19
  • @sbaba US resident for tax purposes. See here: fincen.gov/forms/files/… page 6, in the middle of the page. – littleadv Jun 26 '14 at 7:27
