Tax Returns for expat

By Terry Savage on March 10, 2020 | Economy & Taxes

Terry, I am an American Citizen returned and living in my native homeland Ireland. Although I have always completed my tax returns while residing in the States; am I required to do so although I have not earned anything in the US for 2019. I have a part time job here(I’m 60 and semi retired) in addition to living off my investments which I converted to rental property. I pay taxes here on my rental earning plus part time job. Thanks much
Cathy

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s what the IRS says!

If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien, the rules for filing income, estate, and gift tax returns and paying estimated tax are generally the same whether you are in the United States or abroad. Your worldwide income is subject to U.S. income tax, regardless of where you reside.
