Reporting financial institutions that have not obtained U.S. TINs of “U.S. specified persons” holding financial accounts must undertake the following beginning 1 January 2020:

  • Obtain and report to the Italian tax agency the date of birth of those holding a financial account as of 30 June 2014 if they have not yet provided their U.S. TINs
  • Request, at least once a year, the missing U.S. TINs from the financial account-holders
  • Conduct, prior to submitting the information to the Italian tax agency, due diligence about the customers to verify the missing U.S. tax code status of the financial account-holders who have not yet provided their U.S. TINs
