    Hi everyone, 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...

  4. Expat Tax
    Dear All, 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...
  5. Expat Tax
    Hi, 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...

    Hej 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...
  8. Expat Tax
    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...

    Hi all, 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...
  10. Expat Tax
    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...
