Free File Program Expanded to Include Returns Filed from Overseas

The IRS on Mar 25 announced that taxpayers who live in unfamiliar countries can now use a Free File module to ready and e-file their sovereign taxation earnings (IR-2011-30). The module is accessible to both U.S. adults and proprietor aliens, and now 5 of a Free File module providers can accept earnings filed from unfamiliar addresses.

The IRS’s Free File program is accessible to taxpayers with practiced sum income of $58,000 or less. The IRS in a proclamation points out that a $58,000 extent relates after a Sec. 911 unfamiliar warranted income ostracism is subtracted from a taxpayer’s sum income. This means that taxpayers vital abroad who use a unfamiliar warranted income ostracism can potentially acquire adult to $149,500 and still be authorised to use a Free File program.

The IRS warns, however, that taxpayers claiming a unfamiliar warranted income ostracism or a unfamiliar taxation credit should make certain that a Free File module they are regulating supports Form 2555, Foreign Earned Income, and Form 1116, Foreign Tax Credit.
