Is e-filing available for late expatriate tax return filers?

E-filing is available if you are filing late tax returns, as long as you aren’t filing under the Streamlined Procedure. If filing Streamlined, you will need to mail paper copies of the returns to the IRS. If you’re filing under the Streamlined Procedures, learn more about the steps you should take to prepare for Streamlined Filing.

Please note – electronically filed tax returns are accepted until November. The specific cutoff date in November is announced in October in the QuickAlerts Library. E-filing will typically re-open in January of the next year.
