Reporting of Foreign Savings Accounts

Post New Topic

Does anyone know what form is used in Italy to report a foreign savings account as required when savings amounts are greater than 10,000 euros? I once found it on the WEB and the gist was that there is no financial impact on taxes , just that the account must be reported. Any help on this would be most welcome.

If you're talking about the tax form you use to report to Italy any funds you have in a foreign bank account then I believe it is the Modulo RW.

By the way, there is a tax impact. You must pay a tax of 0.2% on all assets, including real estate, that you own outside of Italy.

Hi. The form you need to file is the FBAR - Foreign Bank Account Report.

Here’s a link.

Thanks Shtinky, but I believe that is the US form for my US filings and that is already in hand. My question was specific to reporting to the Italian Authorities. I have since learned that supplemental Italian form RW is used to report foreign assets in conjunction with the annual Italian return. If you or anyone can add t this, please do. Also if anyone knows what information is required with regards to foreign accounts, that would be a great help. I think it's just the account details and balance as of 31 December.

Thanks Dave, that is helpful and agrees with recent info I pulled in. Does the 0.2% tax apply to bank accounts? My understanding is there is a flat tax (about 34 euros) per bank account. Also, specific to bank accounts, do you know what info is required for completing the RW form?

Sorry, I misunderstood what you were asking. Our commercialista only asks for copies of the balances at the beginning and end of the year for our investments and savings.

You're right about the flat charge for each bank account. I should have said a 0.2% tax on all foreign investments, not assets,

Sorry I've never completed the modulo RW so can't help you there. I strongly advise you to get an Italian commercialista to do your taxes.

I agree with Da e 2018. Get a commercialista to do your taxes. They aren’t expensive and worth it Because it’s complicated. Not like in the US where lots of people do their own.

Thanks Dave and Shtinky. You have been most helpful. I do plan on finding a commercialista with experience in service to US expats receiving pension income. In fact, I've posted a new question to this forum asking for recommendations. If you could provide any recommendations, that would be great.
