3.  Updated! FATCA IDES Data Preparation Examples Available on GitHub

Users have inquired about technical solutions and specifications regarding data preparation to create IDES data packets. In response, the IRS developed examples that conform to published guidelines.  The examples, available on GitHub, explain how to create an IDES data packet and decrypt a notification.
GitHub is an open source repository hosting service that allows users to collaborate and share code. You are invited to review the examples, participate in the online community and create your own technology solutions.
• IDES Data Preparation for.NET 
• IDES Data Preparation for Java
• IDES Data Preparation for OpenSSL
Note: Please note that there are many open market tools that produce the same results; however, the IRS does not endorse any commercial products, including the frameworks used in the example.  All contributions and discussions must be done using the collaboration feature available directly within GitHub. Please do not contact the IRS with questions related to GitHub or the information posted in the repository.
