Forgot to file your US Tax Return?

Here are two options.


Filed US Taxes before?

First Abatement Waiver

Missed the US tax deadline?
The First Abatement Waiver can be used to avoid penalties if you already have filed in the past

This process is mostly used for those that missed the US tax deadline, but otherwise would be compliant with their US expat taxes. This waiver can be used for a failure-to-file, failure-to-pay, or failure-to-deposit penalty, and can only be claimed for a single tax period.

Haven't Filed in Years or Never Filed US Taxes?

The Streamlined Procedure

3 years of tax returns and 6 FBARs without any failure-to-file or FBAR penalties.

IRS developed the streamlining procedure in 2014 to help taxpayers catch up on taxes and expanded their services to help Americans overseas file overdue US tax returns. If you qualify, you will not be subject to penalties such as failure-to-pay, failure-to-file, or FBAR penalties - awesome! Also, the program allows you to file amended returns to claim missed returns on qualified foreign pension plans.

Do you qualify for the streamlined procedure?
  • checkmark_v2

    You did not live in a home (have an abode) in the US for the last 3 years.
