Exploring USA Tax-Free Opportunities for US Expats in the UK with Xerxes Associates LLP
"USA tax-free" may sound like an enticing prospect for US expatriates living in the United Kingdom. While certain opportunities exist for minimising or legally avoiding US taxes, it’s essential for US citizens and green card holders in the UK to understand the nuances and intricacies of achieving a tax-efficient status. Xerxes Associates LLP, a distinguished US and UK tax advisory firm, offers expert insights on USA tax-free options and how we can assist US expats in optimising their tax situation.
Understanding USA Tax-Free Opportunities:
Foreign Earned Income Exclusion (FEIE):
The Foreign Earned Income Exclusion is a valuable provision that allows US expats to exclude a certain amount of their foreign-earned income from US taxation. For the tax year 2022, this exclusion limit is $112,000 per qualifying individual.
Foreign Tax Credits:
US expats in the UK may be eligible for foreign tax credits, which can offset their US tax liability on income earned in the UK. These credits help avoid double taxation.
Tax Treaty Benefits:
The US-UK tax treaty contains provisions that can impact the tax treatment of various types of income. Understanding and utilising these treaty benefits can result in a more tax-efficient situation.
