Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)

In 2010, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) came into effect, requiring financial information on U.S. persons to be provided to the IRS by foreign financial institutions.

In early 2014, Canada and the U.S. governments signed an Intergovernmental Agreement that will enforce FATCA. Required information will be provided to the IRS through the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA).

As a result, all depositors of Peoples Trust Company, will be required to certify if they are either a U.S. citizen or resident.
