For Tax Year 2016, do you plan to use the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion?

When you live and work outside the U.S., the U.S. tax code allows you to exclude about $105,000 from taxation on the assumption you're paying taxes where you live.  There is a lot of fine print for this tax form. We'll help you figure out if you qualify.

Typically, foreign tax credits are used by people who earn more than $105,000 a year or who have investment income. The calculations are complex.

We appreciate your interest. You will need to contact the U.S. Consulate to apply for an ITIN.  At the end of 2016, the IRS canceled its operating agreements with Certified Acceptance Agents with offices outside the United States.  

We can no longer accept applications on behalf of the IRS.People who need an individual tax identification number will need to apply in person through the US consulate or directly with the IRS (by mail). I am sorry that we won't be able to help you.
