Foreign Accounts - Interest Reporting

Answered by: 

Question: 
Does the bank need to report the interest earned on an account of a foreign individual with a SSN not valid for employment? Does it need to report the interest earned on an account of a foreign individual with a SSN valid for work only with DHS authorization? Does it need to report interest earned on an account of a foreign individual with ITIN?
Answer: 

Interest reporting on Canadian non-resident aliens is required on Form 1042-S. If you performed back-up withholding on a non-resident alien, I believe you have to report that also on a different form, but it has been a while since I looked at it.
