International Taxes Can Be Complex But They Don’t Have to Be

International Tax Compliance
If you are an American citizen who lives outside of the United States, you could be surprised and caught off guard to learn that you’re still responsible for paying taxes. The IRS is able to track U.S. citizens’ income earned in a foreign country, as well as assets held overseas or in foreign bank accounts.
Reporting Foreign Income and Assets
By federal law, U.S. citizens have the responsibility to report any and all foreign income and some assets to the IRS. In addition to filing all applicable forms, you may be required to file:
- Form 8938 – Statement of Foreign Assets
- FBAR – Foreign Bank Account Reporting Form
