FinCEN 114 (Foreign Account Holdings)

U.S. individuals or corporations who own or have signature authority over any foreign financial account that had a balance exceeding $10,000 at any time during 2014 may have to file Form FinCEN 114 (formerly TD F 90-22.1). Much more information can be found in this article or the links provided in it. As noted above, the name of the form has been changed. More significantly, beginning with the previous year’s filings, the form must be e-filed; paper filing no longer is allowed.

If your personal tax refund is dragging its feet, note that many tax jurisdictions offer methods of checking the status online. Here are links to a few that you may find helpful.
