Press release from: Zilker Ventures

Tax season may be over for most people, but another important tax deadlines is just around the corner. June 15th is the last day that U.S. citizens living abroad can file their taxes, unless they file for an extension. Anticipating the deadline, tax preparation software comparison and review website has posted ten useful tips for filing your state and federal taxes when living in another country.

In 2006, the U.S. State Department estimated that close to six million Americans were living abroad. Even though Americans living abroad must pay income taxes in the country where they live and work, they must also file and pay state and federal income taxes to the U.S. Paying taxes while living overseas can be complicated, which is the reason the U.S. government automatically extends the filing deadline to June 15th.

“We recommend that Americans abroad use tax software products to help them file their taxes,” says developer Koby Wong. “The software can calculate your Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, handle deductions and provide tax support.”
