As a long term traveller and liveaway Northern Irishman, I am fully aware of the problems we face with money, taxes, visas and trying to keep within the laws as we venture around the world. In my life I have paid taxes in Northern Ireland, England, Poland, Hong Kong and Australia. As a novice, I often needed friends to help me understand tax laws and tax systems. I spent so long trying to work it out. So for a United Kingdom citizen, it can be tricky but imagine for US citizens – life gets even harder.
Americans (USA) living outside of the United States must file US taxes on all their worldwide income. When you are in lands afar, this is particularly hard, especially in countries like Russia and China where language can be a major issue. There are some online tax guides on travel and business sites worth checking out and they can help you in this regard.
Moving on from that, there is even a specific website geared towards helping you and it is called Taxes for Expats. Now personally I prefer the term immigrant and I never class myself as an expat, expatriot or expatriate, as it sounds like they used to be patriotic and are no longer. I’m an immigrant. This is where Taxes for Expats comes in to really help you out, keeping you within the law while still working overseas.
With the Taxes for Expats (TFX) system, there are easy to follow steps and expert guides to ensure your taxes are paid correctly, on time and within the United States law. You can see the product pillars of TFX which include:
