I live in Argentina and have lived here my whole life. I also have US citizenship (so dual citizen).
I have filed my taxes via TaxAct for the last couple of years, since I earned less than the standard deduction because of Argentina's current tough economic situation. However...
Yes, still struggling with 2018.
(I filed similarly for 2015-2017 and have now become aware of how the simplified 1040 has just spread out into additional schedules. :clap2:)
I understand that I am to put my excluded income (2555-ez) as a negative on Schedule 1 Line 21. But if I add up my...
US citizen here :wave: - I am a full time resident in the UK. Filing taxes for 2019 on my own this year vs through a paid preparer. I am aware for my circumstances I need to file:
Schedule 1 to reflect the income reported on Form 2555
I have filled out all of...
Regarding Form 2555 "Foreign Earned Income", I noticed I am unable to add two separate forms for two jobs (at least at freeflileable forms and HRBlock websites). In 2018, I had switched jobs and therefore unsuccessfully tried to include names of both the companies.
Is the above an...
Fairly simple questions (I hope!) on behalf of my wife, a US citizen now long-term resident in UK (over 20 yrs). (I do her IRS filings for her - she always files as "Married, filing separately", as I am a Brit with no US income at all, also resident in UK).
In previous years she was...
I lived in Bolivia for about a year and half with a 6 week break in the middle. During my time in Bolivia, I worked in an orphanage and I received a salary of about 1500$. I came back to the US in May of 2016 and got a job so now I need to file taxes for 2016. I received a W2 for my...
US citizen now in Sweden
First time doing my US taxes and it's from another country.
I feel out of my depth when trying to decipher the almost incomprehensible jargon that is tax law.
I briefly had a job in the US where I made 6000, then made 12000 in the last 3 months while in sweden...
I am a US citizen by birth. I'm confident that I am a bona fide foreign resident as I have been living in the UK for the past 5 years with my British husband, and do not maintain any "abode" in the US.
However, I do travel home every year. Sometimes I will "work from home" while visiting...
I've already browsed around this Forum and found some excellent advice - thanks to all contributors and those who asked :)
I moved to Germany permanently in January of 2013, have since had a German employer and made well under the maximum 97.600 USD.
I have filled out my 2555-EZ and...
Do I need to complete an FBAR for all 6 years as part of the streamlined process? There is only one year with an account over 10,000.
I was hoping simply to file for that year but not sure if it looks like a red flag - just filing one year.
I'm completing form 2555 "foriegn earned income...
By doing my final revision, I went into this infinite loop and got confuse. Surely a language barrier issues.
This is process I use to do my tax,
2555 (L45) -> 1040 (L21)
1040 Schedule B (L4) -> 1040 (L8a)
But on form 2555 Line 44 confuse me...
