Hello, I have a bank account in Italy, as I
Hello, I have a bank account in Italy, as I own a house there but reside in UK. The bank has sent a letter by recorded delivery asking for il numero di identificatione fiscale to comply with the Foreign Account tax compliance account (FATCA) In addition it requests a copy of my Tax Identification number (TIN). It wants a response within 15 days.
Idon't particularly want to provide them with my unique tax reference number here in the Uk, I don't rent out the Italian property either so there is no undeclared income.
I'd like to know if anyone else has been asked for this and how does one respond ?
