Form 8938 and relinquishment

Post by Taxpoor » Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:50 pm

I relinquished my US citizenship on December 12th 2012.

My question is regarding the "tax year beginning and ending dates" on page 1 on the filers information on form 8938.

Do I just file 8938 from Jan 01 2012 to Dec 31st 2012, or do I have to file only to Dec 12th 2012?
