Tax obligations of U.S. citizen living abroad - February 5th, 2014


The US taxes its citizens and permanent residents regardless of where they reside. This means that an American citizen or permanent resident is required to report their worldwide income to the US whether or not they live in the US. In addition to paying tax on worldwide income they are required to report many foreign assets; such as, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, insurance policies, annuities, pensions and ownership in foreign entities in and trusts. The taxation of American citizens and permanent residents abroad is very complex. This coupled with the fact that many US citizens and permanent residents don’t know they are required to file and pay tax in the US and/or report their foreign financial accounts and/or assets leads to a high level of noncompliance.

For more information, we invite you to attend the presentation “Tax obligations of U.S. citizen living abroad”. How Americans and “Green-Card” holders living/working in Austria comply with their U.S. Tax obligations. Items such as reporting your income, FBARs, FATCA and much more will be discussed.
