We created a simpler way for dual citizens to file US taxes.

From document preparation to tax saving opportunities, we make filing easy.

  1. Dual citizenship can be expensive for US expats paying taxes to two governments. To reduce—or even eliminate—your US tax bill, dual citizens can use the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, foreign tax credits, and the foreign housing exclusion.

  2. Considering renunciation? Dual citizens will need to think about the financial, legal, and political implications of giving up US citizenship. To renounce, you’ll need to be up-to-date on your taxes and pay a fee to the IRS. Consider renunciation carefully as it is final and cannot be undone.

  3. If you own foreign real estate, you may have special tax obligations or be able to deduct mortgage interest that has been converted to US dollars.

  4. The IRS requires all US citizens—including dual citizens—to report on foreign financial assets and bank accounts. Skipping this part of your US tax return can result in costly penalties.

Knowing US tax rules for dual citizens is the easiest way to remain compliant and avoid extra costs. That’s where Greenback comes in!

Save time on your US expat taxes.

Together, we’ll review your dual citizen US tax needs. Need help getting caught up on your US taxes? Own a business? We’ve got you covered. Generally, most dual citizens living abroad will need to file the following:

Federal Tax Return

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.


State Tax Return

This varies on the last state you lived in in the US. Some states like California or Virginia require you to file a tax return, others like Washington or Texas do not. We can advise you based on your specific situation.


FBAR Reporting

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
