US expat tax return requirements apply to expats, including citizens and green card holders. They must continue to file U.S. Federal іnсоmе tах rеturns, еvеn іf thеу rеsіdе оutsіdе thе U.S. and have no U.S. income.
The normal due date is extended, and special tax breaks are available to many expats.
Extensions of time can be found to make it easier to qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion on Form 2555. State tax returns might not be due in any respect.
Moving beyond the U.S. does not eliminate your U.S. tax return filing obligation.
If you are a citizen or permanent resident (“green card” holder), you must continue to submit your US expat tax return each year if you have more income than certain minimums.
