Q: Can we obtain a copy of a FinCEN SAR that we filed using the BSA E-Filing System?
A: The BSA E-Filing System is not a record keeping program; consequently, filers are not able to access or view previously filed reports. The BSA E-Filing System does provide tracking information on past report submissions and acknowledgements for accepted BSA reports. Users of the BSA E-Filing System must save and can print a copy of the FinCEN SAR prior to submitting it. FinCEN does not provide copies of filed reports to filers.
