US Tax Law Change for Americans Living Abroad

As a US citizen, living and working abroad for many years, I recently heard of a new law that I must file tax returns on the US by Aug 31, 2011 or face a penalty. Anyone know about this? If US citizens live and pay taxes abroad, they generally are exempt up to $91,500.

Overseas worker needs help with state taxes

How do I accurately determine which state to claim as my 'tax' state. For example, I work/live overseas for 2 months at a time, then I get 1 month off and usually travel or go to the US, but I do not rent an apartment, own a home (have a lease or mortgage) - I usually crash on friends' couches, and I keep my belongings and car in NC (in a Public Storage unit), but my mail, driver's license and voting is registered in TX. Which state can I legally claim? I know I need to claim a domicile in a state, and was hoping it could be TX.

    Accountant recommendation for NY/NJ

    I butchered my state income taxes in 2008. New Jersey caught on with an audit, and now I owe NJ a lot of money. I suspect that if I did the taxes correctly, almost all of that money (except for 3 years of interest :( ) would actually come from New York State. Having screwed it up once with Turbotax, I don't trust myself to get it right by hand. [more inside]

    How can I tell if a tax accountant is on the up-and-up?

    I'm meeting with a tax accountant for the first time on Wednesday. I'm a freelancer who gets my income from a number of sources (a combination of freelancing and part time salary work), so my taxes are pretty complicated. Two friends who do similar work recommended this guy, and said he got them big refunds last year, despite having almost no taxes withheld all year. I'm a newbie to taxes -- when meeting this guy, how can I tell whether he's on the up-and-up or whether he's going to get me audited?

    Multi-State Tax Fiasco

    I am having some major tax issues and can't find the right way to go about filing for 2010. I left to travel abroad in January 2010. However, I was finally paid my last part of a bonus in March 2010. I forwarded my address to my parents house in Illinois - but officially I don't really have proof that I actually lived in IL (No lease, no driver's license etc.). To make things more complicated I lived in NYC and worked in Connecticut. Therefore, I have NY State, NY City and CT state taxes taken out of my pay check. Then I moved to Wisconsin in August of the same year. What do I do/What state should I claim I was living in when I was received my final pay check? 1. Claim I was living in IL? 2. Claim I am not a resident of any state when I was last paid? 3. Claim I was living in WI? 4. Another option I am not thinking about? Any advice would be appreciated/I know you aren't a tax professional!

    I Have a Real Estate Tax Question...

    A real estate/math/tax question. I sold my house for $210,000. The buyers wanted a new roof but wanted that included in the loan so the sale price was changed to $217,000 and the $7000 for the roof was paid out of escrow. When I do my taxes next year do I need the receipt for the roof or do the buyers? I believe that since I technically paid for the roof, the cost of the roof could be used to offset the capital gains on the house. What do you think?
