The IGA is simply a shortcut to an intergovernmental agreement. To implement FATCA, the U.S. government has developed two forms of AIG: the Model 1 and Model 2 agreements. As part of a Model 1 agreement, foreign financial institutions report information about U.S.-related accounts to their national tax administration. The national tax authority then forwards this information to the U.S. government. Many Model 1 IGAs also include An Appendix II that lists country-specific financial institutions that are issued as compliant. In some countries, AIG Model 2 has addressed concerns that the FATCA regime may violate local or national laws. Under a Type 2 agreement, the financial body can provide information directly to the IRS.
Growth Planning: The Intergovernmental Agreement in Colorado is a guide for local government employees and public servants considering cooperative planning, including intergovernmental agreements (IGAs). Developing an IGA can be a challenge, and this manual provides insight into the process, when and how they are used, frequently asked questions and state-wide example agreements. Check out more examples from Colorado in the list below. An intergovernmental agreement (IGA) is any agreement that involves or is concluded, in cooperation with two or more governments, to resolve issues of mutual interest. Intergovernmental agreements can be reached between or between a wide range of public or quasi-state authorities. Governments use GIs for cooperative planning, development assessment, resource release, joint planning commissions, building inspection services and much more. The published IGA guidelines provide practical assistance to financial industry employees dealing with companies involved in the agreements with the United States and the United Kingdom. ALERT: Updated Withholding Foreign Partnership (WP) and Withholding Foreign Trust (WT) Agreements have been published and published on the FATCA website. The two updated agreements are presented in the 2014-47 PDF Income Procedure, which updates and replaces the WP and WT agreements, originally published as the 2003-64 income procedure, 2003-2 C.B 306. The IGA Global Summary provides a general summary of all countries with substance agreements or agreements that are published directly with updates to the Fatca Resource Center of the U.S. Treasury Department.
