Here is a list of countries that are under the IGA 1 model. The Common Reporting Standard requires each signatory country to collect the complete credentials of each banking customer, including additional nationalities and birthplaces. Prior to the introduction of IRS, there was no other way to fully and comprehensively identify immigrants and emigrants and citizens using their identification numbers, places of birth and nationalities. Each participating government is responsible for collecting and storing the data of all its citizens and immigrants and transmitting it automatically to participating countries. IRSs are able to transmit personal data in accordance with the requirements of residence-based taxation or local taxation (CBT) or personal taxation. The second version of the IGA is the Model 2 IGA, which would require FFIs to report information directly to the IRS. Under this IGA, FFIs must register with the IRS and some FFIs will sign a version of the FFI agreement that has been amended to reflect the IGA. FATCA was the stimulating part of the Employment Promotion Act in 2010, the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act , and was adopted as Subtitle A (sections 501 to 541) of Title V of this Act. According to the IRS, „FFIs that enter into an agreement with the IRS for the expertise of their account holders may be required to withhold 30% for certain payments to foreign beneficiaries if these beneficiaries do not comply with FATCA.“  The United States has not yet complied with FATCA itself, as it has not yet granted the promised reciprocity to its partner countries until 2017 and has not complied with the Standard Common Reporting Standard (SIR).      FATCA has also been criticized for its effects on Americans living abroad and has been implicated in record figures for the abandonment of U.S. citizenship during the 2010s.
   Bills to repeal fatca have been introduced in the Senate and the House of Representatives.    It is important to note that the absence of FATCA in these countries does not mean that financial institutions do not report to the IRS in these jurisdictions. Some foreign financial institutions operating in these countries report these countries. The IRS maintains a list of FFI that also report in non-FATCA countries under FATCA and is regularly updated The FATCA WEB website is regularly updated with responses to FATCA questions, but no direct answers are provided. You can ask a question here if you can`t find the information you need elsewhere.
