Are you an expat who’s tired of struggling with US taxes?
As US citizens we’ve all been there. The new year rolls around and tax season approaches, and we wish–just once–that there was an easy way to handle all the paperwork and filing from Thailand. It gets so frustrating that we give thought to not filing at all. “Who cares, anyway? I live in Thailand. Could I really get in trouble for not filing my taxes?”
You’re dead right you could. If you decide to skip filing taxes for even one year you could face some hefty penalties–one of them being the revocation or denial to renew your US passport.
But let’s not forget, taxes are a complicated matter. Although each of us file federal taxes, state taxes are filed differently depending on which state we last lived in. I could go on-and-on about foreign-earned income exclusions, totalization agreements, social security taxes, 1040s, and more. And how about tax write-offs? How will you know you’re getting the most back on your return if you’re not familiar with the process?
To put it another way, do you really want to do your own taxes or risk hiring someone who doesn’t know a lick about the United States and Thailand Tax Treaty? I didn’t think so.
So here’s what I suggest. It’s better to get tax help from a trusted tax service. They’ll prepare and file all of your taxes and make sure you get the most on your next tax return. But with a list of online choices, how do you know which tax service to use?
It’s simple. Use 1040 Abroad. Here’s what one of our readers had to say.

“Being an Expat and living in Canada since 1966 I only became concerned about my obligations to file a US tax return when I read several news articles in early 2012 about the possible penalties for not filing.
I didn’t have a clue what to do and of course was concerned. I searched the web and found Olivier’s site. I contacted him and told him my story. He told me what docs he needed to get me on track.
