Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,The potion of the Form 8854 where you list your bank accounts is for calculating your net worth and is not meant to include your bank accounts in taxation. This really is used to determine if your net worth makes you required to file the 8854. The fact that your bank account is more now than it was when you became a resident alien is not a source for taxation. If the amounts are significanr then your attached statement will explain the reason.
