What are Expat Taxes for US Citizens Living Abroad?

By Michelle Hrvat | September 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

The Topic of the Expat Taxes… Have you ever wondered what is the difference between US expats abroad and US citizens in the States when it comes to filing their US tax returns? The answer: Mostly everything. US citizens living in the states are generally looking to optimize their tax return (i.e. pay less US taxes). US Expats, on the other hand, are looking to complete their filing obligation and make sure they are not double taxed since they’re already paying taxes to their current host country.

By Michelle Hrvat | September 5, 2018 | 0 Comments

Storytime : James is a US expat living in Singapore who plans to see his family in the states. Since his passport is expiring he has to renew it before traveling. So upon giving his application at the US Consular in Singapore, James got troubling news: they have to hold his application for 90 days because he needs to sort out some serious tax debt – thus on the way of his passport being denied as a US expat. Sounds pretty daunting for James right? This can be a worst-case scenario for US expats who have a high outstanding tax debt (including interest and penalties).

The Streamlined Procedure for U.S. Expats

By Michelle Hrvat | August 1, 2018 | 0 Comments

What is the Streamlined Procedure In layman’s terms, if you are a U.S. expat and meet the requirements of filing/paying U.S. taxes, BUT forgot or didn’t know you have to file your U.S. tax returns and FBAR annually, you can use the Streamlined Procedure. Keep in mind though, your actions must be innocent. The IRS emphasizes that neglect and inadvertence for U.S. taxes must be the result of a ”good faith misunderstanding of the requirements of the law.” So unless you got sweat dripping down your forehead because you know you’ve been avoiding US taxes for some years now, you’re going to be okay.
