1. Expat Tax Returns
We prepare tax returns for individuals living abroad. If you have overseas banks accounts you may also be required to file a Foreign Bank Account Report (FBAR) to disclose the existence and balances of your foreign accounts. Failure to report these account may subject one to monetary penalties, forfeiture and possibly criminal consequences.
2. Failure to File and Back Tax Returns
US tax residents living abroad may still be required to file tax returns even if living abroad. Individuals often mistakenly believe that they no longer have to file tax returns when living abroad. We can assist individuals to prepare and file back tax returns. The process normally involves identifying whether the failure to file and tax returns was willful or non-willful. After determining whether the file the tax returns and FBARs was willful or non-willful, then we can develop a plan to help the client become complaint. This may be a complicated process that could involve services of an outside firm to prepare the tax returns.
