Tips for Taxpayers with Foreign Income

The Internal Revenue Service reminds U.S. citizens and resident aliens, including those with dual citizenship who have lived or worked abroad during all or part of 2011, that they may have a U.S. tax liability and a filing requirement in 2012.
 
The IRS offers the following tips for taxpayers with foreign income:
 
1.Filing deadline - U.S. citizens and resident aliens residing overseas or those serving in the military outside the U.S. on the regular due date of their tax return have until June 15, 2012 to file their federal income tax return. To use this automatic two-month extension beyond the regular April 17, 2012 deadline, taxpayers must attach a statement to their return explaining which of the two situations above qualifies them for the extension.
 
2. World-wide income - Federal law requires U.S. citizens and resident aliens to report any worldwide income, including income from foreign trusts and foreign bank and securities accounts.
 
3. Tax forms - In most cases, affected taxpayers need to fill out and attach Schedule B, Interest and Ordinary Dividends, to their tax return. Certain taxpayers may also have to fill out and attach to their return the new Form 8938, Statement of Foreign Financial Assets. Some taxpayers may also have to file Form TD F 90-22.1 with the Treasury Department by June 30, 2012.
 
4. Foreign earned income exclusion -  Many Americans who live and work abroad qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion. If you qualify for tax year 2011, this exclusion enables you to exempt up to $92,900 of wages and other foreign earned income from U.S. tax.
 
5. Credits and deductions - You may be able to take either a credit or a deduction for income taxes paid to a foreign country or a U.S. possession. This benefit is designed to lessen the tax burden that results when both the U.S. and another country tax income from that country.

An outstanding blog about Federal law requires U.S. I think that we must follow the federal law for citizens and resident aliens to report any worldwide income, including income from foreign trusts and foreign bank and securities accounts. Thanks!

If employers for one reason or other fail to adjust the rate on the first pay check of 2013, then they must make an adjustment in a subsequent pay period to correct any underwithholding of social security tax as soon as possible
