1.  Validate Your IDES Digital Certificate for FATCA Reporting

IDES has advised that there is a significant number of expired digital certificates currently in the IDES enrollment system.  Additionally, many more certificates are set to expire in the next 90 days.  You MUST have a valid certificate associated with your IDES enrollment to successfully file FATCA Reports through IDES.

If you need to file FATCA Reports for tax year 2018, please access your IDES enrollment and ensure you have a valid (not expired) certificate on your account.  If your certificate has expired, you can replace it yourself through the enrollment site. 

For more information on acceptable digital certificates for IDES use, please see:
