For 35 years WATAX has been providing expat tax preparation services for US citizens living overseas.
Filing taxes living abroad is required, owing US taxes can cause problems for your passport renewal, add to that the unpredictability of the US Government in the realm of immigration and getting assistance from US tax professionals has never been more relevant.
As tax specialists for expats, WATAX focuses on these essentials to get you back into compliance;
- You're likely not going to owe US taxes as the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion and the Foreign Tax Credit, used in combination can reduce most taxable income.
- If you are self-employed or living in a country not covered by the Totalization Agreement, you could owe the taxes that fund your Social Security.
- There's certainly no rule-of-thumb on how many returns to file. But most people who file the last six years satisfy the IRS system. However, some people try to file less than that and see how the IRS responds.
- Filing recent returns will provide $3200 in pandemic stimulus payments to you even if you lived abroad.
