Foreign bank accountant and assets reporting requirement


If you are a U.S. person and holds an account or signature authority over an account located outside of the United States; and the total value of all foreign financial accounts exceeded $10,000 at any time during the calendar year reported, you must report your accounts on FBAR by June 30.


Taxpayers with specified foreign financial assets that exceed $50,000 on the last day of the tax year or $75,000 at any time during the tax year (MFJ more than $100,000, .) must report those assets to the IRS on Form 8938,



Buying or leasing a car 


With both purchased and leased cars, you can choose to deduct either the standard mileage rate , parking fees and tolls or the actual expenses .


For the purchased car, you can deduct the business percentage of your interest expense on the loan. And, you can deduct its cost over 5 years (aka depreciation) . However, if the car worth more than $16,000 it consider “luxury” car and there is a limit on the annual amount you can deduct.

(Due to these limits, it could take 12 years to depreciate all of the cost of the car).


If you lease a car, the car is not yours; you can deduct the business percentage of your lease payments. There is also a limit on the amount you can deduct each car, but it’s minimal compare to the purchase car option. ( “lease inclusion amount” )


As the price goes up on the car, leasing usually becomes more preferable.
