  • the reporting obligations of reporting financial institutions being liquidated
  • timing of self-certifications (with respect to new individual and entity accounts)
  • how to determine the controlling persons of an entity 
  • excluded accounts, i.e. accounts held for the purpose of condominium or housing cooperatives
  • indirect distributions by a trust
