Irs problems If you are a U. Irs problems S. Irs problems citizen or resident alien, your worldwide income generally is subject to U. Irs problems S. Irs problems income tax, regardless of where you are living. Irs problems Also, you are subject to the same income tax filing requirements that apply to U. Irs problems S. Irs problems citizens or resident aliens living in the United States. Irs problems Expatriation tax provisions apply to U. Irs problems S. Irs problems citizens who have renounced their citizenship and long-term residents who have ended their residency. Irs problems These provisions are discussed in chapter 4 of Publication 519, U. Irs problems S. Irs problems Tax Guide for Aliens. Irs problems Resident alien. Irs problems   A resident alien is an individual who is not a citizen or national of the United States and who meets either the green card test or the substantial presence test for the calendar year. Irs problems Green card test. Irs problems You are a U. Irs problems S. Irs problems resident if you were a lawful permanent resident of the United States at any time during the calendar year. Irs problems This is known as the green card test because resident aliens hold immigrant visas (also known as green cards). Irs problems Substantial presence test. Irs problems You are considered a U. Irs problems S. Irs problems resident if you meet the substantial presence test for the calendar year. Irs problems To meet this test, you must be physically present in the United States on at least: 31 days during the current calendar year, and A total of 183 days during the current year and the 2 preceding years, counting all the days of physical presence in the current year, but only 1/3 the number of days of presence in the first preceding year, and only 1/6 the number of days in the second preceding year. Irs problems Example. Irs problems You were physically present in the United States on 120 days in each of the years 2011, 2012, and 2013. Irs problems To determine if you meet the substantial presence test for 2013, count the full 120 days of presence in 2013, 40 days in 2012 (1/3 of 120), and 20 days in 2011 (1/6 of 120). Irs problems Because the total for the 3-year period is 180 days, you are not considered a resident under the substantial presence test for 2013.

Irs problems Self-employment tax. Irs problems    Chapter 3 discusses who must pay self-employment tax. Irs problems Foreign earned income exclusion and housing exclusion and deduction. Irs problems    Chapter 4 discusses income tax benefits that apply if you meet certain requirements while living abroad. Irs problems You may qualify to treat up to $97,600 of your income as not taxable by the United States. Irs problems You also may be able to either deduct part of your housing expenses from your income or treat a limited amount of income used for housing expenses as not taxable by the United States. Irs problems These benefits are called the foreign earned income exclusion and the foreign housing deduction and exclusion. Irs problems   To qualify for either of the exclusions or the deduction, you must have a tax home in a foreign country and earn income from personal services performed in a foreign country. Irs problems These rules are explained in chapter 4. Irs problems   If you are going to exclude or deduct your income as discussed above, you must file Form 2555, Foreign Earned Income, or Form 2555-EZ, Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. Irs problems Exemptions, deductions, and credits. Irs problems    Chapter 5 discusses exemptions, deductions, and credits you may be able to claim on your return. Irs problems These are generally the same as if you were living in the United States.
