    Foreign asset declaration

Can you say whether or not a BullionVault , or GlodMoney account holder who is a US Citizen

is required to file Form 90-22.1 with the US Treasury declaring an account with

a foreign financial institution ?

For what it’s worth, my tax accountant told me yes in a very similar situation.
If you don’t want anyone to now what you have, better get a safe deposit box.

Be careful of safe deposit boxes. Banks are agents of the government. If they find out the box holder has died, they will seal it up until the IRS gets a chance to value what’s inside.

If you don’t want to get victimized by government grave robbers, a coffee can in the back yard might be a better bet. Just be sure to leave a treasure map for your heirs.

You will want to check with your tax advisor. 

If you are not comfortable with a financial institution, I was recently told that some jewelers also provide safe deposite boxes.

Or like the US government did in 1933,  declare that no safe deposit box may be opened unless in the presence of an IRS agent, so they could nick the gold therin……………
