Tax Deadlines by Country 

Tax Deadlines by Country 
April 5, 2022

All US citizens who meet certain income thresholds are required to file a US tax return every year. The standard due date for this is April 15. Expats get an automatic extension to June 15, with a possible further extension to October 15 if you request it. 

However, most Americans living abroad will also have to know the tax deadline for the country they now call home. To help with that, here is a list of tax deadlines by country.
