Spring Forward: Tax Seminars

⭐️ Tax advice needed: you asked, we listened! ⭐️ 

➡️ Join Democrats Abroad for a series of tax talks. Throughout February and March, members like you have the opportunity to learn valuable information on investing, filing, and more! 

1️⃣ How To File The FBAR

Tired of paying someone else to file the FBAR for you every year but not sure how to do it yourself? In this webinar, an expert will walk you through the process of filing the FBAR, which is free when you do it yourself. They'll show you the form, what information you need to provide, how to submit the FBAR online, and the filing deadline.

⏰ February 16 at 2:30AM
RSVP: www.democratsabroad.org/filefbar 

2️⃣ How To Catch Up On Filing US Taxes from Abroad

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.

⏰ February 22 at 4:30PM

3️⃣ Investing For Americans Abroad And Dual Citizens

Although this isn't a tax event per se, we received high demand to host a webinar on investing. It is really difficult for Americans abroad and dual citizens (particularly in Europe) to find ways to invest their money in the country they live in as well as in the United States. We often feel like we're stuck in a rock and a hard place, unable to open an investment account in some cases and save for our futures. In this webinar, we'll go over investing basics and the options available. Please note, this session will focus on European Union regulations but will cover basic investing principles applicable anywhere.

⏰ March 1 at 4:30PM

4️⃣ Retirement & Taxes For Americans Abroad

Are you starting to plan for your retirement, you're about to retire, or you're already retired? Ever wondered how taxes on your non-US pension works? Join us to go over common retirement tax issues like taxes on Social Security and how taxes on your US retirement plan works if you plan to retire abroad.

⏰ March 9 at 2:30AM
RSVP: www.democratsabroad.org/retiretaxevent
