Amended Tax Returns


Expats who either filed their own return or consulted a US based tax consultant who has limited knowledge about international tax rules and regulations oftentimes get wrongly filed tax returns that result in a high U.S. tax liability. These tax returns can and should be amended. An amendment tax return can be used to correct misinformation previously filed on Form 1040, 1040EZ, or 1040.

After a tax return has been incorrectly filed, it can only be changed by filing an amendment return on a specific Tax Form.

The following types of changes can be made by filing an amendment tax return:

  • Change filing status
  • Claim credits or deductions which weren’t originally claimed
  • Correcting the mistake of having taken credits for which the taxpayer was not eligible
  • Increase or decrease number of dependents
  • Report additional income

It is common for US expats' tax returns to result in no US tax liability at all, with a balance of 0. But if you find yourself in the situation of having a high US tax liability on your US expat tax return, you may be able to file an amendment tax return to get credited, add deductions, obtain tax benefits or fix any other detail which may have been missed the first time around when you filed.

If you are attempting to amend your tax return, and to recover a credit or refund, you have a time cap of 3 years after filing your original tax return to file an amendment return, or 2 years after having paid the wrongful balance of your tax liability. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you act timely to get your tax return amended.

An amended tax return could legitimately get you back hundreds or thousands of dollars from the IRS.
