FAQ: Expat's Guide to US Tax

As US tax season is rapidly approaching, I thought I would take a few moments to share with others on EF the single-best resource on US taxes for expats that I've come across: The Expat's Guide to US Taxes

I came across the guide last year as I prepared my US taxes, and it really is the first guide I've come across that is specifically geared towards Americans living overseas. Despite a long trawl through the tax books available on Amazon, nothing else even comes close.

This guide has information on who is required to file (and what to do if you should have been filing but didn't), how to handle foreign earned income, deductions, foreign tax credits and lots of other topics that are of interest to expats. Most helpfully, it includes samples of completed tax returns, which I found greatly clarified the guidance I'd seen elsewhere.

I learned more in two hours spent reading this than in weeks of what I'd gleaned from the IRS publications, chats with my tax accountant, and what I learned from US-focused tax guides.

Hope it's as helpful to others here as it was to me.
