Expat Taxes 101: How to File Expat Taxes in 2021

What It's About

It's no secret that filing US expat taxes can be complex and intimidating. Americans abroad often find themselves juggling extra requirements and deciphering complicated legal jargon.

Even worse, tax mistakes can be costly for expats, resulting in hefty IRS penalties. As a result, too many Americans abroad feel burdened by the cost and anxiety of filing US expat taxes.

In this webinar, Greenback will cover everything you need to file your expat taxes quickly and accurately while making sure that you never pay more than you have to.

Plus, you'll find out what advocacy groups like American Citizens Abroad (ACA) are doing to relieve the burden of expat tax requirements, and what you can do to support these efforts.
