Testimonials

Collin, Thailand, Expatriate American
"Thank you for a great tax return service. I though that filing my US Taxes while I am living in Thailand will be too difficult to manage. Boy, I was wrong. With your help I filed not only this year return, but also caught up on all my unfiled tax returns from previous years."
 

Jim, Singapore, Expatriate American
"I was truly impressed with your tax return preparation process. You have really made it easy and user-friendly for an Expatriate American like myself to file our US taxes. Thanks guys ." 

Bobby, UK, Expatriate American
"At first I got lost: Foreign income tax exclusion... foreign income tax credit... Tax Treaties... well, too techy for me.  It was really easy filing my taxes with your Expat tax team. They also took the time to explain to me all the tax breaks, tax benefits and tax liability that apply to me being an Expatriate American in the U.K."
 

Ron, Turkey, Expatriate American
"Thank you for being so patient. When we took the assignment in Turkey we did not really know what should we do with our US taxes. Your CPAs were very helpful in advising us on our tax status while we are expatriate. We had rental property back home, we purchased a house here, my wife, Rachel, had an online business in the US which she continued to operate remotely, I had my foreign salary and interest from a Turkish bank where we put some of our cash and we had a kid in college. We were really lost. I was amazed to see how your guys took all this information and step by step turn this raw material into an accurate and complete tax return that gives us all the tax benefits we could ask for under the law. Really recommended."

Tax Alert

US Taxation for Expatriate Americans Living Abroad

As an Expatriate (Expat) American (American Citizen or Green Card Holder living abroad) you should be aware of several tax filing requirement that you must comply with even though you are out of the U.S. and have no U.S. source income. This article explains what are these filing obligations and when do you have to submit them.
  

What do you have to file?

The U.S. tax code has in place set of returns, form and schedules that An American living abroad must prepare and file. Failing to submit some of those returns may result in large penalties and subject you to criminal charges. On the other hand, filing all the forms and returns listed in this article, not only put you in full compliance with the IRS but also allow the statute of limitations for IRS audits to expire three years after you file those returns. It means the IRS will not be able to go back (excluding fraud claims) and audit those returns.
  

IRS Form 1040 - U.S. Individual Income Tax Return

The internal Revenue Code defines a U.S. Citizen and a U.S. Permanent Resident (e.g. Green Card Holder) as a U.S. person for tax purposes. As such, both are liable for filing on a timely manner a U.S. individual tax return, IRS form 1040 and all applicable schedules, and report any U.S. and foreign source income taxable by law. For example, if you work for a foreign employer in the country where you reside, those wages are reportable on your U.S. tax return. Additionally, any interest, dividend or capital gains you earned in the U.S. or outside in the U.S. is reportable as well. Should you file a return even if your income is below the IRS filing requirements for the year? Yes. As explained above, filing a return start the clock on the Statute of Limitations, therefore you should file your tax returns even if you have no income or don’t owe taxes in order to force the statute of limitations to run and eliminate future problems when you decide to return to the U.S., the deadline for filing this return is June 15 for the previous tax year ended December 31.
 

IRS Form 2555 - Foreign Earned Income Exclusion

Meeting certain criteria will allow  you to qualify for the foreign earned income and foreign housing exclusions and the foreign housing deduction and significantly reduce your taxable foreign income. If you are a U.S. citizen (or a U.S. Permanent resident) living abroad, you are taxed on your worldwide income. However, you may qualify to exclude from income up to $91,400 of your foreign earnings. In addition, you can exclude or deduct certain foreign housing amounts. To be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, the foreign housing exclusion, or the foreign housing deduction, you must: (1) have foreign earned income, (2) your tax home must be in a foreign country, and (3) you must be one of the following: (3.a.) U.S. citizen who is a bona fide resident of a foreign country or countries for an uninterrupted period that includes an entire tax year, (3.b.) U.S. resident alien who is a citizen or national of a country with which the United States has an income tax treaty in effect and who is a bona fide resident of a foreign country or countries for an uninterrupted period that includes an entire tax year, or (3.c.)  a U.S. citizen or a U.S. resident alien who is physically present in a foreign country or countries for at least 330 full days during any period of 12 consecutive months. The term "foreign country" does not include U.S. possessions such as Puerto Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, or American Samoa. The deadline to file this form is the same as form 1040, see above.

 

IRS Form 1116 - Foreign Earned Income Tax Credit

The foreign tax credit is designed to eliminate (e.g. in some cased only to lower) the double tax liability resulting when foreign income is taxed by both the United States and the foreign country in which it was earned.  Generally, income tax paid (as appose to other taxes, not income tax) or accrued to a foreign country or a U.S. possession will qualify for the foreign tax credit. Tax paid to countries that repeatedly provides support for acts of international terrorism,  the United States does not conduct diplomatic relations with the country, or the United States does not recognize the country's government does not qualify for the Foreign Earned Income Tax Credit and Expat American will not be able to use. The deadline to file this form is the same as form 1040, see above.

  

TD F 90-22.1- Report Of Foreign Bank And Financial Accounts

If you are a United States resident for tax purposes (e.g. U.S. citizen, Green Card Holder or reside in the U.S. for 183 days or more during the tax year) you must file IRS form F 90-22.1 to report financial interest in or signature or other authority over any foreign financial accounts, including bank, securities, or other types of financial accounts, in a foreign country, if the aggregate value of these financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year. The deadline to file this form is by June 30, of the succeeding year.

  

What should you do if you have not filed previous years?

Many  Americans living abroad unintentionally fail to comply with the above because they incorrectly think that living out of he U.S. means that they have disconnected their ties to the IRS thus they are not liable to file any US. tax returns or pay any U.S. tax. When they learn that the IRC (Internal Revenue Code) actually "follows" them to their foreign country, they become concern and unsure about the right way to resolve the issue.
  
When problem like that arise, it is highly recommended to file a minimum of 3 (three) years of unfiled tax returns, report your U.S. and foreign income and pay any tax due to the IRS as soon as you become aware of the default. We strongly suggest that you retain a tax accountant that is experienced in issues related to Expat taxation and that can represent you before the IRS. Your goal is to comply with all IRS filing requirement, pay any tax due and then apply for penalties removal if the IRS assesses any.
  
An experienced tax accountant will be able to help you with filing previous year returns, take advantage of the tax breaks available to you by law (as an Expatriate American living abroad) and then communicate with the IRS to try and minimize penalties.
  

Conclusion

Taking an assignment in a foreign country or simply living outside of the U.S. does not releases you from complying with all IRS filing requirement if you are considered a U.S. person. Disregarding these laws, regulations and requirements may result in significant penalties, collection actions and even criminal charges against you. It is easy to avoid those issues by submitting the necessary tax returns and forms. Tax Usa, has the expertise and experience to assist you with all the issues listed above.
