US tax return for expats
The US is the only developed country that requires tax returns to be filed based on citizenship rather than residence. This can make filing a tax return in America from abroad difficult; you also need to know exactly what forms you need to avoid owing double taxes.
You always have to file your US tax return if you earn more than the tax threshold.
If you earn more than the tax threshold, you must always file a US tax return.
Citizen-based taxation is a system in which people are taxed based on their citizenship rather than where they live. This means that even if a person lives and works in another country, they must still pay taxes to their home country on their earnings. This is in contrast to a residence-based tax system, in which individuals are only taxed on their income if they live in the country where it was earned.
Many CPAs lack or have insufficient knowledge and experience in filing for a US citizen living abroad. Choose an affordable expert with the right experience.
