Income Tax

U.S. Income Tax Assistance

While the U.S. Consulate cannot provide tax advice for U.S. taxpayers living overseas or recommend specific filing services, various resources are available for those seeking tax assistance. The IRS provides tax forms and instruction booklets, along with additional information, on its website at www.irs.gov. In particular, IRS Publication 54: Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad and the Basic Tax Guide for Green Card Holders may be useful and relevant for those living outside of the United States. The State Department also provides information on taxes for overseas citizens and resident aliens at http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/international/article/0,,id=97324,00.html and http://travel.state.gov/travel/living/living_1234.html#taxes. It is the choice and responsibility of taxpayers to decide how they want to file their taxes. Options may include:

Electronic filing services, which allow you to file and pay online with the help of a tax preparer or by yourself. Popular tax preparers include H&R Block (http://www.hrblock.com/) and Jackson Hewitt (http://www.jacksonhewitt.com/), as well as popular tax preparation software like TurboTax (http://www.turbotax.com/), allow you to file electronically. Details are available at http://www.irs.gov/.
