Box 32621, Detroit, Mich., 48232-0621. The address for commercial delivery is: U.S. Department of Treasury, Currency Transaction Reporting, 985 Michigan Avenue, Detroit, Mich., 48226. The FBAR form is not available for electronic filing, but many income tax software packages can prepare a printed copy. FBAR forms are also available on the IRS Web site or FinCEN Web site, and from the IRS via telephone at (800)-829-3676. The FBAR form is required for each U.S. person who has a financial interest in, or signature authority or other authority, over any financial accounts, including bank, securities or other types of financial accounts, in a foreign country, if the aggregate value of these financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year.
