  1. Expat Tax
    Hello everyone, I was born in the US (by non-US parents) but have no ties to the US. I was raised in Europe and lived there all my life. 4 years ago I found out about my wonderful US tax obligations and (as recommended by a tax attorney) started filing FBARs. As I was still studying and had no...
  2. Britain Expat Forum for Expats Living in the UK
    Hello, Are there any other US citizens living in the UK who are having trouble tracking the status of their economic impact payment (i.e. stimulus check) on the IRS website?

  6. Expat Tax
    Just made my first visit to the IRS site for the new filing season, and I'm pleased to report that the 2019 forms all seem to be available. The Free File section is also open for business, though the Free File Fillable section for e-filing won't be open until January 27th this year...

  9. Expat Tax
    On Thursday, April 11th, after coming home from work, much to my dismay the IRS had sent me a questionaire dated March 15th demanding that I answer the letter within 30 days of the date of this letter. This is already an unreasonable demand because it leaves me only a few days with which to...
  10. Expat Tax

Background: We are married US expats living in Australia as a permanent residents (just applied for citizenship... woohoo!). My partner in a physician - so a...
  11. Expat Tax
    As you probably know, the US Government is partially shut down, and this includes the IRS. While it doesn't absolve anyone from their tax obligation, it is very likely to add a bit of "spice" (and uncertainty) to the filing season. I've seen somewhere (NOT on the IRS website) that they will...

  14. Expat Tax
    Hello everyone, I would like to explain my current situation and see if anyone who has more knowledge than me on the subject can guide me please. I'm a bit worried because I don't think many other people are in the same position as me, as most expats either hold just one passport (a U.S...
  15. Spain Expat Forum for Expats Living in Spain
    For the first time I have to file taxes in the USA while, as a US citizen (dual nationality), I live abroad in Spain and I'm married to a foreign spouse.

    What are the tax implications for an American living in London who rents out a 2nd bedroom in their main residence through Airbnb? Assume £100/day limited to 90 days in 2017 the property will produce £9,000 income. From what I understand, the UK's "Rent a Room" scheme allows the first £7,500...

    The US tax man is failing to provide an adequate service for American taxpayers living abroad having closed overseas offices and reduced other services, according to a new report. Indeed, the report from the National Taxpayer Advocate, goes on to say that the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS)...
