More than 800 US citizens registered for the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce US Expats Tax Seminars on March 9+10 2015 at the Cotsen Hall of the American School of Classical Studies, including thousands of Greek Americans, who live in Greece. The need for US citizens in Greece to become informed about their US tax filing obligations was evident and many US citizens in Greece had the opportunity to become properly informed on the unique tax filing and bank report obligations of U.S. citizens working or living abroad. The presentation followed a Q&A session. 

Topics covered include:

-Use of the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion (FEIE) under I.R.C. Section 911 and of Foreign Tax Credits to reduce or eliminate US tax

-Foreign Bank Account Report (FBAR) filing requirements for US citizens

-The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) filing requirements for individuals and foreign bank reporting of “US accounts”

-Tax return and FBAR filing compliance for delinquent US taxpayers; using the Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedures (SFOP) to avoid tax and FBAR penalties
