E-filing IRS Form 2350
« on: April 12, 2012, 02:55:25 pm »
I've been reading up on what I need to do for filing my U.S. taxes, and I think I have a good handle on the steps to be taken. However, in the course of my reading the information in the IRS website about form 2350 (the extension for time to file), it says that it can be e-filed, along with e-payment, through tax software or a preparer, yet I've seen no tax software that will support the form. Does anyone know of any online tax preparation that DOES support it? It appears that TaxAct, TaxSlayer and TurboTax don't. (I've tried searching to see if someone already asked this and couldn't find anything, so apologies in advance if this is a repeat).

I just filed the extension for free through TurboTax.  Just Google "turbotax extension."

Thanks!  :) I got started on that, but then it looked like they only had the other extension form (4868 or something similar). Guess I read too quickly.

You know that American expats have until June to complete right? Automatically? You don't have to file for an extension up till then.

Just be aware that as an American citizen living overseas you get an automatic exemption to FILE, but you don't get an extension to PAY.  If you owe tax, it's still due April 15 even if you don't file until June 15.

What happens if someone already filed my taxes for me, but I didn't know to attach the 2555-EZ exemption form?  I'm confused...does that extended filing period include filing the 2555-EZ foreign income tax exemption form?

Anyone know of any online tax software that actually works for expats? I've tried a few but they won't let me leave certain fields blank like employer's unique tax identification number.

I have used Turbotax and Taxact many times and have not had a problem while filing with an overseas employer.
