All forms must now be electronically filed, except for the Form 8300 and the CMIR (FinCEN Form 105), which can be filed in paper form, but businesses are highly encouraged to file them electronically (except for the FBAR), which is very easy and gives you instant confirmation of receipt. To register for electronic filing go to the BSA E-Filing System and select the “Become a BSA E-Filer” button. If you are a business that files 8300s, when they ask for your regulator, yours would be “IRS (Internal Revenue Service).” All others must be filed electronically and are not available in paper form. They will not be accepted in paper form. Below are the last revised paper versions that were available before the conversion to electronic. These are only here for your convenience to look at and review.
