Explanations for Specific Items
Part I — Filer Information
Item 1. The FBAR is an annual report. Enter the calendar year being
reported. If amending a previously filed FBAR, check the “Amended”
Item 2. Check the box that describes the filer. Check only one box.
Individuals reporting only signature authority, check box “a”. If filing a
consolidated FBAR, check box “d”. To determine if a consolidated
FBAR can be filed, see Part V. If the type of filer is not listed in boxes “a”
through “c”, check box “e”, and enter the type of filer. Persons that
should check box “e” include, but are not limited to, trusts, estates,
limited liability companies, and tax-exempt entities (even if the entity is
organized as a corporation). A disregarded entity must check box “e”,
and enter the type of entity followed by “(D.E.)”. For example, a limited
liability company that is disregarded for United States federal tax
purposes would enter “limited liability company (D.E.)”.
Item 3. Provide the filer's United States taxpayer identification number.
Generally, this is the filer's United States social security number (SSN),
United States individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or
employer identification number (EIN). Throughout the FBAR, numbers
should be entered with no spaces, dashes, or other punctuation. If the
filer does NOT have a United States taxpayer identification number,
complete Item 4.
Item 4. Complete Item 4 only if the filer does NOT have a United States
taxpayer identification number. Item 4 requires the filer to provide
information from an official foreign government document to verify the

month, day, and year convention.

residing outside the United States must enter the individual's United
States mailing address. If the individual does not have a United States
mailing address, the individual must enter a foreign residence address.

foreign mailing address.
Item 14. If the filer has a financial interest in 25 or more foreign financial

accounts, only complete Part IV, Items 34-43, for each person for which
