Are you an American living abroad in South Korea? South Korea is the next hotspot for American life considering its thriving economy. A common question many Americans living there ask is “should I file my taxes with the South Korean or US government?” Expatriate Tax Returns is here to answer your questions and help you with your tax needs.
If you are an American living in South Korea, Expatriate Tax Returns is the perfect company to file your taxes with. We service all people with American citizenship no matter their location. Filing with us is easy and our staff is happy to help answer any questions or resolve any tax concerns.
The South Korean tax calendar follows the same deadlines as the American format: January 1 to December 31. Tax returns must be filed by the 31st of May in the following year. The only difference is that residents in South Korea must pay 50% of their taxes by the 30th of November in the year that the taxes are due.
Americans living in South Korea must also file using specific documents. These documents include but are not limited to:
IRS Form 1040 (tax returns for individual income)
IRS Form 8938 (Specified Foreign Financial Assets; FATCA)
FinCEN Form 114 (Foreign Band and Financial Accounts FBAR)
