Bank letter re Tax Domicile

2 posts in this topic

We've been away from Germany 16 months and we closed our bank account about 6 months ago.  We've just received a form to fill, from our ex bank with the title Selbstauskunft fuer natuerliche Personen fuer den automatischen zwischenstaatlichen Informationsastauch FATCA. I asked on the bank's helpline and this is what they said

Möglicherweise haben Sie noch weitere Verbindungen zu uns, zum Beispiel als Bevollmächtigter.
Ihre aktuell bei uns vorliegenden Daten deuten z.B. durch eine ausländische Adresse oder Staatsbürgerschaft darauf hin, dass Sie möglicherweise steuerlich nicht in Deutschland veranlagt werden. Aus diesem Grund bitten wir Sie, uns diese beigefügte Erklärung auszufüllen.
Vielen Dank schon einmal dafür!

I don't understand, I don't have any Verbindungens with the bank or the country. Should I just ignore it? I know it's only a few questions to answer but I find it irritating that they are bothering me with the measly savings, that I had there, while the big bastards get away with billions.

I would suggest writing back to them quoting the first sentence & stating that to your knowledge you have no Verbindungen to them.

Add that if they have knowledge of such Verbindungen you would be grateful if they would inform you!
