US Taxes For Overseas Americans – Everything You Wanted To Know (But Were Afraid To Ask)

US Taxes For Overseas Americans – Everything You Wanted To Know (But Were Afraid To Ask)

Are you a US citizen living and working in Thailand? Have you ever opened up the last page of your passport and read the fine print that states “All U.S. citizens working and residing abroad are required to file and report on their worldwide income”? You may ask yourself: “Why is this so and does this really apply to me? What can I do about it and how can I prepare myself for the future?”

Join us at the FCCT on Thursday, February 20th at 7:00 PM to learn how US tax policy impacts American citizens residing overseas. The presenter will be Matthew Stevens, Managing Director of Global US Tax Plan, a boutique tax practice located in Bangkok that specializes in meeting the needs of the US expat community in Thailand. In addition to a short history of how we got here, Matthew will demystify the often complex filing requirements that apply to individual US citizens living abroad (regardless of how long they’ve been overseas), including reporting of foreign-sourced income and ownership of non-US assets. If you’re an American who has avoided dealing with all this, come learn what the options are for getting into compliance with the US tax code. And if you own all or part of a small foreign business, you can’t afford to ignore the latest US tax code changes which may have a very specific (and often dramatic) impact on your US taxes. The presentation will be followed by Q&A, so bring your toughest questions for Matt to answer!

Tickets are 300 baht, available from FCCT at the door, from 6:00 PM onwards.

We will have a voter assistance table set up to help answer any questions you have about requesting your absentee ballot and participation in the Dems Abroad Global Presidential Primary.
