Tax Rules for Americans Living in Turkey

Tax When it comes to taxes, especially the less common expatriate tax issues, the easy way can quickly become the hard way. The most common simplified tax preparation methods are the popular mass-market tax programs. And while tax software does work well for most people, these programs are simply not equipped to handle all of the overseas issues relevant to expatriates. Going to a chain tax business while back home in the U.S. may only be one step above the software, though, as the employees at these chains are usually unfamiliar with expatriate exclusions and other issues.
