FEDERAL TAX RETURN PREPARATION
Americans who live abroad are subject to U.S. income taxation on their worldwide income and are required to file a U.S. federal income tax return. If you paid taxes to the country where you live and are subject to U.S. tax on the same income, you may be able to take a credit for those taxes. If you meet certain requirements, you may qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion, allowing you to exclude from your income an amount of up to $108,700 (for tax year 2021).

Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return
As a U.S. citizen, regardless where you live, you’re required to file Form 1040 with the IRS to report your worldwide income. You may be required to file additional forms and schedules as part of your tax return. The filing due date for Form 1040 is April 15 for most taxpayers. If you file after this date, you may have to pay interest and penalties.
Form 1040NR, U.S. Tax Return for Nonresidents
If you’re not a U.S. citizen, but do have U.S.-source income, you may be required to file Form 1040NR to report that income to the U.S. tax authorities (IRS). If you received U.S.-source income and U.S. federal income tax was withheld on that income, you may be able to claim a refund for (part of) the income tax that was withheld by filing a tax return. You would need a U.S. taxpayer identification number before you can file a U.S. tax return.
Dual-Status Tax Return
Special tax return filing requirements apply to individuals who are ‘nonresidents’ for part of the tax year and U.S. citizens or residents for the other part of the tax year – they are required to file a ‘dual-status’ tax return. This situation usually arises when an individual renounces his U.S. citizenship during the year or when a non-U.S. citizen moves to the U.S., for example on a job assignment.
