  2. […] “Some FFIs”, reported the IRS, “…expect to be reporting Model 1 FFIs … are concerned about missing the April 25 deadline in case the relevant IGA is not in fact signed, and therefore treated as being in effect, by July 1.”  Treasury has signed IGAs with 26 jurisdictions and has reached agreements in substance with 20 more that have been published, and is in advanced discussions with many others.  Treasury and the IRS have on April 2, 2014 issued Announcement 2014-17 to provide some level of comfort to FFIs in such jurisdictions that already have reached an IGA in substance and to USWAs paying agents.  See https://profwilliambyrnes.com/2014/04/03/treasury-releases-22-new-fatca-igas/ […]
