IRS TAX AUDITS OF EXPATRIATE TAX RETURNS

 


    In the past, United States Citizens filing expatriate tax returns have not been audited by the Internal Revenue Service that often.  However, this has now changed. Expatriates tax returns for past years are now being audited. You may have already or will soon receive a notice of audit.  Do not represent yourself unless you are an expert on US expatriate and international tax law and even then experienced audit counsel may save you significant additional tax adjustments and penalties.

    We recently acquired copies of the questionnaires used by the IRS to conduct audits of Form 2555 which is filed to claim the foreign earned income exclusion.  Such audits are usually conducted by mail and the IRS agent makes their audit decisions based on the documents, and answers supplied to the Agent by the taxpayer being audited.

   The following forms are used by the IRS to audit expatriates claiming the foreign earned income exclusion.  Download these forms and use them to determine if you have adequate support for your Form 2555 if your subject to an income tax audit by the IRS.
