Re: Credit suisse - W9 form and waiver forms

Being required or not to fill out a tax form has nothing to do with FATCA compliance.
No, it doesn't. Banks are being required to report all their US clients, no matter whether they need to file or not. Neither the IRS, US government nor banks care whether you don't need to file; they want your info and FATCA is the means to get it.

mcbuddah, yes that is the case. It's actually part of the FATCA regs that an account must be closed if you don't comply iirc. So all banks are going to require a W-9, unless you take the step to renounce your US citizenship.
