Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a 2010 United States federal law, which is intended to enforce the requirement for United States persons including those living outside the U.S to file yearly reports on their non-U.S financial accounts to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN). The aim is to detect and deter the evasion of U.S tax by persons who invest money outside of the U.S.
