The US Embassy would like to remind US citizens that they are required to file their federal income taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by April 18, 2022. If you are a US citizen or resident alien living or traveling outside the United States, you generally are required to file income tax returns, estate tax returns, and gift tax returns, and pay estimated tax in the same way as those residing in the United States. Your worldwide income is subject to US income tax, regardless of where you reside.
As a service to readers, this message has been edited and reprinted from a bulletin issued by the US Embassy.
Please visit the IRS website for US taxpayers living abroad at: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/international-taxpayers/us-citizens-and-resident-aliens-abroad.
