Interesting article in the Wall Street Journal: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788732345510457901...I was particularly surprised to note the complexities of US taxes for citizens living abroad. For example, even though income below $100K/year is exempt, one still must file a tax return.And there can be penalties for failing to file forms that far exceed the taxes owed. Consider this: Bryan Skarlatos, a New York partner with law firm Kostelanetz & Fink who has handled hundreds of offshore accounts cases, says the total includes more than a dozen in which the tax and interest owed on offshore accounts was less than $20,000. Yet the IRS assessed penalties of more than $1 million, he says. The IRS declined to comment.
