What Is An Expat?

An expatriate, or expat, is a U.S. citizen or green-card holder living or working outside the United States. Importantly, even though they are no longer in the U.S., they are still required to report worldwide income and file a Form 1040 if they meet specific filing thresholds. However, there are some special issues expats need to consider when filing their return. Fortunately, the Expat tax advisors at Expatriate offices can help you navigate through the complexities of your U.S. reporting obligations.

  • You live and work in a country with lower tax rates than the U.S.
  • You’re not taxed on your foreign investments, or
  • You still receive income from U.S. sources
