About This Webinar

US citizens, Green card holders and residents (based on the Substantial presence test) are taxed on worldwide income. US citizens and green card holders living abroad have a responsibility to file tax returns reporting worldwide income if their income is over the reporting threshold even if they do not owe taxes. Form 2555 and Form 1116 are important to reduce tax exposure for these clients who live abroad. This seminar will discuss the preparation of Form 2555 and go over key terminology with relevant examples. Unique issues faced during year of departure and year of entry will also be addressed.

Learning Objectives:
- To understand why a taxpayer would file Form 2555 or Form 1116
- To understand tests for qualifying for the Foreign Earned Income exclusion
- To understand key terminology
- To discuss issues during year of departure and year of entry
- To provide relevant examples of Form 2555
