FATCA

As a result of the US tax law FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act), approximately 100 countries and the US have agreed to exchange information. Because of this, financial institutions are required to identify and report the aggregated amounts on accounts held by US persons to the local tax authorities, who will then report to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In Russia and Switzerland, financial institutions report directly to the IRS.

US persons are defined as persons who reside in the US, have US citizenship (including dual citizenship) or hold a US permanent residence permit (Green Card) or are corporations registered in the US.
