On April 17, 2012, the US Treasury Department released final regulations and a revenue procedure setting forth the requirements for US offices of certain financial institutions to report on the interest earned by nonresident individuals. Although the regulations, and the multiple sets of proposed regulations that preceded them, are often referred to as the “bank deposit” interest regulations, the preamble to the regulations notes that they will affect commercial banks, savings institutions, credit unions, securities brokerages, and insurance companies that pay interest on deposits. The new reporting rules apply to interest paid on or after January 1, 2013.
