Hello Anthony, hello Claudine. We are back talking about FATCA. We thought we wrapped up, but one last thing we wanted to talk about. And I would even say that one last thing, yeah, for now, for now, for now. What we want to talk about is we talked about penalties for individuals not filing certain forms, right? For the U.S. persons who have an account, right? That's who we're talking about. Yep, well, we did talk about that, but today we're talking about FFI's or foreign financial institutions.

This will be a continuation of the story of the wife How Did I Get In Trouble With the IRS? I started with a Form 8288 with the Form 8288A, which was signed but was not filed, showing an understated amount of income, due to the non-lodged form. The Tax Advocate Podcast Here's the first clue that my wife wasn't going to have the tax refund that she claimed I got very irritated. This was a new form she requested, and I had no idea about it at first. It took me 2 hours to find and file it for her. She signed the form, and that was it. We weren't sure if it was the actual value of the property she was selling, although the seller's agent had provided receipts for the value of the property I went over to make sure she was satisfied with her purchase, but it didn't add up. How could I do that? But Then, Things Really Got Weird This next letter went out on November 17, 2013, just 10 days after sending the Form 8288 with the Form 8288A.
