You must submit a Federal tax fornon residents to the U.S. government if you received income while you were a non-resident for tax purposes during the previous calendar year. You may also need to file a state tax return in addition to your federal one. For this, USA Expat Taxes is a trustworthy services provider.
For instance, if you are a U.S. citizen living abroad in Canada, the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) standard deadline for receiving your U.S. income tax return is April 15. (April 18, 2022). However, those U.S. citizens or residents whose tax home and habitation, "in a real and substantial sense," is outside the United States and Puerto Rico are automatically given a deadline extension until June 15.
Additional extensions may be requested by filing Form 4868 (automatic extension; extends the filing deadline until October 15 (October 17, 2022)), writing to the IRS with an appropriate justification (this extension requires IRS approval; if approved, extends the filing deadline by an additional two months to December 15), and Form 2350 (particular extension for U.S. expats for purposes of meeting certain Foreign Earned Income Exclusion requirements).
Your alien status is determined by the IRS using two tests: the significant presence test and the green card test. For income tax reasons, you are either classed as a resident alien if you meet the conditions of either one or as a non-resident alien if you don't.
You are a resident alien if you have a green card, which means that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service has granted you permission to live lawfully in the United States. The physical presence test is typically met, and you are also treated as a resident alien if you do not have a green card and spend at least 183 days in the country over the course of the previous three tax years (inclusive of the current tax year) and at least 31 days in the country during the current tax year.
You don't include each and every day when calculating the total number of days you spent in the country over the course of the three years. Instead, simply include a small portion of the days in each of the first two years. Imagine, for instance, that you are attempting to determine your status for the 2022 tax year since you spent 60 days in the country. For 2022, you count all 60 days; for 2021, you measure a third of the days; and for 2020, you trust a sixth of the days. If you spent 120 days in the U.S. in 2021 and 180 days in 2020, subtract 40 days from each year and add them together for a total of 130 days throughout the three years.
