Expatriate Tax Due Dates


Are you an American living overseas? US citizens and green card holders are taxed on their worldwide income so it is necessary, if you meet the filing requirements, to file a US income tax return and possibly the Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts. US expatriates may even have to file state income tax returns. Contact us if you are not certain if you have to file a state income tax return. Here is a list important due dates for expats. If you had a tax liability in the previous tax year, you may have to pay estimated taxes in the current year if you expect to owe $1,000 or more. Contact us to calculate your estimated payments.
