Internal Revenue Service (U.S. Taxes)

The U.S. Embassy does not have an Internal Revenue Service representative at post. However, the IRS has created a new comprehensive webpage which is directed to U.S. citizens who reside abroad. This page contains basic tax information that Americans overseas need to know and also includes links to more detailed topics such as the foreign earned income exclusion, foreign tax credit, reporting foreign bank accounts, Fulbright grants, state taxes, and a myriad of others.

Rather than navigating through, this page will provide “one stop shopping” for U.S. citizens abroad. The intent is to provide answers to most of their tax questions in one place. The site also provides information on how to contact the IRS to get additional assistance.
