Living abroad can be exciting. It’s an opportunity to experience new cultures and expand your horizons. While you’re putting down roots in another country, don’t forget that you still have legal responsibilities to the United States. As a citizen, you are still required to file your taxes.
Who Has to File U.S. Taxes?
If you are still considered a citizen of the United States, then you must file a tax return. That includes filing for income tax as well as gift tax and estate returns. The good news is most U.S. citizens living abroad do not owe money, just the return.
Is There a Deadline for Expatriate Tax Filing?
If you are one of the minority that does owe money, payment was due to the IRS on April 15th. Interest is accrued so pay as soon as possible. As an expat, you do have an automatic extension for filing. Even though payment was due by April 15th, your tax filing was not due until June 15th. If you were unable to file by June 15th, you were required to request for an October 15th extension.
A CPA can help you file as well as provide important and helpful financial advice to ensure that your paperwork is correct and that you pay the amount required by law. Make tax filing easy, contact Expatriate Tax Returns today.
Relocating can enable you to get a great job, make more money and have a totally interesting change to your lifestyle. Moving offshore creates other issues that need to be considered like:
- Dealing with foreign currency and exchange rates
- Language barriers
- Benefit packages such as health insurance, tuition, housing, transportation
- Tax rules, rates and regulations
Basically, pretty much everything you take for granted.

Tax Day, April 15th has passed. The bad news is if you owe taxes to the U.S. government, payment is overdue to the IRS. As an expat, you are given an automatic two-month extension to June 15th for filing but all monies owed were due on April 15th.
Hopefully, you are among the majority of Expats who do not owe any taxes but if not, pay now. If you are one of the minority expats that do owe taxes, you may have to pay interest. Submit your payment in full to stop the interest from accruing. Our CPA’s are here to help make your tax filing easy, contact Expatriate Tax Returns today.
Adults across the U.S. will recognize April 15th as Tax Day. This is when individual income tax returns are due. There is some flexibility for expatriates. The Internal Revenue Service website states that if you are “a U.S. citizen or resident alien residing overseas or are in the military on duty outside the U.S.” that you are given an automatic two-month extension for filing.
You are not required to submit a request to take advantage of this extension. Your tax filing will be due by June 15th if you qualify. As long as you pay all taxes (most expatriates don’t owe any taxes), no late penalties will be applied. A CPA can provide valuable financial advice and help ensure that you always pay the amount required by law – no more and no less. Make tax filing easy, contact Expatriate Tax Returns today.
