Recently discovered your US citizenship status and tax obligations? Don’t panic! Our tax professionals help accidental Americans like you understand what you need to do to and how to save on your tax bill.
Find out how to get caught up on US taxes, reduce your tax bill, and file efficiently.
Most accidental Americans can use the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, foreign tax credits, and the foreign housing exclusion to reduce or eliminate their US tax bill.
Even if accidental Americans can get rid of their US tax liability, they must file an informational return. Failing to do so can result in hefty fines—even if you don’t owe tax.
If, as an accidental American, you were unaware of your US tax obligations, you can use the IRS Streamlined Filing Procedures to get caught up penalty-free. But this amnesty program isn’t likely to last forever, so accidental Americans should take advantage of these benefits now.
To discourage tax evasion, the IRS requires all US citizens to report on foreign financial assets and bank accounts. Foreign banks share information on US citizens—including dual citizens—with accounts, which makes it easy for the IRS to find accidental Americans and charge penalties.
Accidental Americans face unique challenges when filing US taxes. Greenback can help!
When it comes to US taxes, a lot of factors can affect your filing needs. Be sure to let us know if you own a business, received an inheritance, or earned income from other sources. We’ll make sure your tax return is accurate and complete. In most cases, accidental Americans will need to file the following:
All Americans living abroad need to file a federal tax return each year, if they make over the minimum filing thresholds (12,000 for filing single, 24,000 for married filing jointly). This is true even if you are filing in the country in which you reside.
If you have a financial interest in one or more overseas financial accounts and the total value of all of the financial accounts combined was $10,000 or more during any point during the tax year.
$100 per 5 accounts
Didn't know you needed to file US taxes? Get caught up penalty-free for one flat fee. We can prepare your entire Streamlined Filing, including 3 years of tax returns, 6 years of FBARs, and Form 14653 to certify that you were unaware of your filing requirement.
Whether it is finding every possible deduction to reduce your tax liability, or providing a timely answer to a question, all Greenback accountants go above and beyond to take care of our clients all around the world.
Our accountants do all the heavy lifting when it comes to your tax return. We don’t have you do any of the financial calculations, as many firms do.
We take great care to explain taxes in simple terms that you can understand. Our accountants are excellent communicators who truly want you to understand what they are doing and why.
Your privacy is always paramount. We use 256-bit data encryption, which is the same as most banks use, to ensure the highest level of security. Each client is given a personal, password-protected online folder where they upload their tax documents. Only you and your accountant will access to the files, so your private information stays just that – private.
