U.S. Expatriates Tax Services
U.S. citizens and U.S. green card holders have mandatory income tax filing obligations, unlike citizens of other countries. The United States imposes taxation based upon citizenship, not based on tax residency. Therefore, U.S. citizens and U.S. green card holders living outside the United States are required to file a U.S. tax return and report their worldwide income in their U.S. tax filings if they continue to meet the annually indexed U.S. minimum filing threshold amounts.
However, residing outside of the United States may permit the application of special tax laws and regulations, when certain qualifications are met, permitting the offset of U.S. tax obligations in whole or in part. These rights of offsets are the result of the integration between the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, Housing Exclusion and/or Housing Deduction and Foreign Tax Credit mechanisms. MillerMusmar CPAs uses the interplay of these mechanisms, in combination, to reduce any U.S. tax you owe.
