I am writing on behalf of my sister who lives in Germany. She only recently learned of the FBAR form from her new accountant based in Germany. All of her past tax returns are complete and all taxable income has been reported. She just completed the 2010 FBAR but is getting conflicting advice on what past years have to be filed.Her accountant says she has to go back five years, and today she called the IRS hotline in Frankfurt,Germany and was told to complete the FBAR for years 2008 and 2009, and if more years are needed she would be contacted.Can anyone confirm that this is the correct answer, and if not, shed some light on what past years should be filed?Thanking you in advance.
Maura102 - "Subject: FBAR"I do not know the answer to your question, and please excuse me, but I read the header as a variation of FUBAR. Sorry. It has been a long day and past couple of weeks.Regards, JAFO
