Even in Korea I can't escape the IRS. I am trying to figure out exactly what I need to file for this tax season. Even though April 15 deadline is fast approaching, because I am living overseas, I have an automatic extension.
I want to get everything done so that I don't have to worry about it. I have downloaded all of the forms and registered for e-filing. Taxes are never easy.
There are plenty of exemptions and circumstances that apply to Americans living abroad. The State Department offers some tips for filing. Other websites offer information here and here.
If any reader has gone through the rigmarole of filing while living abroad and would care to offer suggestions or helpful hints, please leave me a comment.
