Americans Moving Abroad
For American citizens (or green card holders) living and working abroad, managing their U.S. filing requirements can be cumbersome.
Compliance challenges are even more significant since the introduction of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
Under FATCA a number of foreign jurisdictions will automatically report bank account information of a U.S. resident taxpayer (U.S. Person) to the Internal Revenue Service. The significant penalties for non-compliance can be very costly.
