Expat Tax 101: US & Brazilian Taxes

Join Democrats Abroad Brazil (DABR) for this special virtual event to discuss the basics of US tax filing requirements for Americans living in Brazil. The aim of this event is to educate you on your basic tax filing obligations and commonly asked tax questions such as:

  • When is the tax filing deadline for Americans living outside the US?
  • How much do I need to earn to file?
  • How do I manage my US student loans while living abroad?
  • Can I open a Brazil pension as a US citizen?
  • Do I have to pay capital gains tax to the IRS when I sell my Brazil home?
  • How much do I have to earn in order to be double taxed?
  • Do I get double taxed if I'm self-employed in Brazil ?

This event is for you if:

  • you just moved to Brazil from the US and you're unsure of your tax obligations
  • you haven't filed for decades
  • you're scared to face your tax filing obligation or don't know what questions to ask to get started
  • you've filed for years but you're not sure if you're doing it right, or
  • you've filed every year but you've wanted a straightforward answer for a specific issue


Attendees are asked to please pre-submit any questions you have here by Friday, March 8 midnight. The more questions we get in advance, the better we can prepare and shape the program around the things you want to learn about the most!

We can't guarantee we will be able to answer all questions submitted before, during, or after the event, but we will try to answer as many questions as possible.
