How To File Your Own Taxes From Abroad (2 Hour Workshop)

Want to save money on an accountant and learn how to file your own US taxes as an American abroad? Join us for this online workshop on the basics of filling in the forms for your US tax return. Limited to 50 participants, the aim of this event is to explain how to file your own US taxes by reviewing the forms required for a basic tax return filing for an American abroad. The session will go line-by-line over the 1040, 2555, and Schedules 1 and 3. Additional forms may be covered if there's enough demand in the pre-submitted questions (note that Form 1116 will be mentioned, but it is recommended to use tax prep software for this form due to its complexity).

(FREE) How To Help Pass Residency Based Taxation

Did you forget to file a US tax return since you moved abroad, or have you been living outside the US for a long time (decades even!) but you've not been filing a US tax return? Join us to go over the IRS Streamlined Filing Procedure - the process to get caught up on your US tax filings. The good news is that you don't have to file for all the years that you missed, you potentially won't owe any US tax, and you might even be eligible for some money from the IRS depending on your circumstances.
