In my original Form 14654, Certification by U.S. Person Residing in the United States for Streamlined Domestic Offshore Procedures, I
included the value of my interest in one or more Canadian retirement plans described in Rev. Proc. 2014-55 (“Canadian retirement
plans”) in the Highest Account Balance/Asset Value and paid the 5% miscellaneous offshore penalty on my Canadian retirement plans.
I certify that I am an “eligible individual” as defined in section 4.01 of Rev. Prov. 2014-55.
I have reviewed my original Form 14654, Certification by U.S. Person Residing in the United States for Streamlined Domestic Offshore
Procedures, and the documents I relied upon in preparing my certification. I have recomputed the Highest Account Balance/Asset
Value and the Miscellaneous Offshore Penalty for my 3-year covered tax return period and 6-year covered FBAR period by removing
the value of my Canadian retirement plans as follows:
Line 1. Previously Reported Miscellaneous Offshore Penalty
1.
Line 2. Revised Miscellaneous Offshore Penalty
2.
Line 3. Requested Refund of Miscellaneous Offshore Penalty (line 1 minus line 2)
3.
If your revised Highest Account Balance/Asset Value is for a year different from the Highest Account Balance/Asset Value in your
original certification, please note the change below:
Original Highest Account Balance/Asset Value year
Revised Highest Account Balance/Asset Value year
