Re: To file or not to file a US tax return...

Ok. Joe wants to come clean.
Can he?
(His income in country A has always been below 100K)
I don't know the entire story about Joe but, yes, he's in some serious shiite particularly for entering the US under a passport other than the US passport (seriously, as a dual holder myself, it can get complicated but the penalties are very serious if you get busted so I stay within the lines). As for non-filing...still, I recommend Joe speak with a good tax lawyer as there was an amnesty program me offered before FACTA got rolled out but that has passed and the hunting has begun. I don't know what kind of paper trail he's left in CH but...chances are, they will catch up eventually. Good luck to Joe.

Geez, and here I am panicking over forgetting to file a visa form for the green card before leaving the US thinking of all the worst-case issues....
