  1. Expat Tax
    Hello, I am struggling with filing US taxes as a permanent resident of Germany. This is my first time doing so. I work as a self-employed teacher for various Volkshochschule here. My 2020 income was very low (around 30,000 US dollars), and I have already paid 4,000 euros in tax to Germany...
  2. Mexico Expat Forum for Expats Living in Mexico
    I'm a US citizen, full time expat, retired, but with an online business that stands to start making some money. I understand there are some significant advantages to setting up an offshore company structure for my online business. To be clear, I'm not talking about doing anything shady...
  3. Expat Tax
    I left the US as a small child. I've never had a social security number, as far as I know. Now, 50 years of a wasted dropout life later, living in many countries, I have made enough money that I need to declare and pay (a little) US tax. But when I applied for a social security number, they...
  4. USA Expat Forum for Expats Living in the USA
    Hello, I've lived in Belgium now for about 6 years. Initially I had a student visa then a Co-habitation visa with my girlfriend. When I left the US at 19 yrs my mom filed me as a dependant and I never filed myself since then. I was financially dependant on my girlfriend until June 2014, in...
  5. Expat Tax
    I'm in the throes of planning a move to London which will happen in about six months time. I've been reading up on the tax and FBAR requirements... I'm wondering if there's a "getting started with US taxes as an expat" thread... Someone told me that companies try to send their employees abroad...
  6. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    Hello! I'm brand new here, so I'm very sorry if my question has already been covered, but I have done several searches on this site and no one seems to be in the same case as I am (which is normal, as my case is a tad complex). So here goes: I've been living and working in France since 2001...
  7. Expat Tax
    Hi. I am a US citizen currently living in the US, and I'm planning to move to France (Lyon) this coming summer to be with my partner, who is French. I have been doing a bunch of reading on FACTA and the US tax laws that apply to US citizens abroad, and it's feeling a bit overwhelming. :eek: I...
  8. Britain Expat Forum for Expats Living in the UK
    My husband wants to either add me to his bank account or open a new account in my name (which I'm thinking will require his name as well since I'm new here). I am retired and have no income for US tax purposes, but know I'm required to file anyway, which isn't a problem. My question is - if he...
  9. Expat Tax
    Hello, I am a US citizen and spent 18 months in Australia. During that time, I filed Australia and US taxes as recommended by both AUS and US experts. So, here is my situation. I only spent July and August of 2013 in AUS (yes I earned AUS money). Previous filing, I reported my US rental income...
  10. Expat Tax
    I am a US green card holder living in Canada and plans to abandon my green card soon. However, I understand that there may be an expatriation tax law on long term residents (LTR) defined by IRS as follow: “You are an LTR if you were a lawful permanent resident of the United States in at least 8...
  11. Expat Tax
    Hello everyone, I have a few questions concerning US taxes. I am a dual citizen but have never actually lived in the USA in my adult life. I was recently made aware that I should have been filing taxes for the last few years. Now I am at a complete loss where to even start. Some general...
  12. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    Hello. I have been self-employed in Paris since 1991 (travailleur indépendant with a residency card). Only once, in 1992, did I actually fill out my US tax forms (1040s, 2555, 4868, etc). At that time, I was getting minimal dividends from some mutual funds (which I no longer hold). Twenty...
  13. Mexico Expat Forum for Expats Living in Mexico
    I was exploring and came across the Artio Partners ad & website. Then I spent the rest of the morning reading about taxes. I was disappointed to see how US citizens are taxed no matter where they live in the world, regardless of if they have to pay taxes to the foreign government where they...
