Who Must File
Corporations that, at any time during the tax year, had assets in
or operated a business in a foreign country or a U.S. possession
may have to file Schedule N. If the corporation answers “Yes” to
any of the questions above, attach Schedule N and the
applicable forms and schedules to the corporation’s income tax
return.
Question 1a
Check the “Yes” box if the corporation is the “tax
owner” (defined below) of a foreign disregarded entity (FDE) or a
foreign branch (FB) or it is required to file Form 5471 or Form
8865 with respect to a CFC or a CFP that is the tax owner of an

generally required to attach Form 8858 to its return. However, if
the Exception below applies, the corporation should attach a

Exception. In certain cases where a corporation owns an FDE
or FB indirectly or constructively through a foreign entity, the

Question 3
If the corporation owned at least a 10% interest, directly or
indirectly, in any foreign partnership (other than any partnership
for which a Form 8865 is attached to the tax return), attach a
statement listing the following information for each foreign
partnership. For this purpose, a foreign partnership includes an
entity treated as a foreign partnership under Regulations section
301.7701-2 or 301.7701-3.
1. Name and EIN (if any) of the foreign partnership.
2. Identify which, if any, of the following forms the foreign

3. Name of the tax matters partner (if any).
4. Beginning and ending dates of the foreign partnership’s
tax year.
Question 5
The corporation may be required to file Form 3520 if:

foreign trust is considered a transferor);
• It is treated as the owner of any part of the assets of a foreign
trust under the grantor trust rules; or
• It received a distribution from a foreign trust.
For more information, see the Instructions for Form 3520.

Information Return of Foreign Trust With a U.S. Owner. For
details, see Form 3520-A.
Question 6
Check the “Yes” box if either 1 or 2 below applies to the
corporation. Otherwise, check the “No” box.
1. At any time during the 2018 calendar year, the corporation
had a financial interest in or signature or other authority over a

• Enter the name of the foreign country or countries (attach a
statement if more space is needed); and
• Electronically file FinCEN Form 114 with the Department of the
Treasury using the FinCEN’s BSA e-Filing System. Because
FinCEN Form 114 is not a tax form, do not file it with your
return.

entity that is required to file Form 8938 with its Form 1120 and
include Form 8938 and this schedule with the Form 1120. See
