How can expats contribute to their US Roth IRA? First let's look at what an IRA is:

Roth IRA: You can make monetary contributions that already had taxes paid (i.e.: after-tax). From this, your earnings and withdraws can potentially be tax-free (as long as you meet certain conditions). You can learn more about it thru this link IRS page.

To determine your IRA contribution limit, you’ll need to look at your filing status, taxable compensation, and adjusted gross income (AGI). You are either eligible for the maximum amount, a reduced amount, or not eligible at all from these three factors. Check out this calculation from TIAA to see how much you can contribute.

Keep in mind: When you use FEIE (Foreign Earned Income Exclusion), this might mean that ALL of your compensation is excluded from US taxation, therefore you have $0 taxable compensation.

Yes, you can e-file your tax return with us, but do note that the IRS requires a paper-mailed tax return in certain situations (like the Streamlined Procedure). If that would apply to you, we'll guide you step-by-step through the process to submit your return via post.

Short answer: Yes!

At the moment, we cannot guarantee that we can cover your state return in the flat fee pricing for our app as each state is different and has different tax laws (to be fair, a handful of states are bigger than some European countries, so we get it).

Most expats don't need to file a state return. However, if it is determined that you do need a state return, we'll let you know immediately and the additional fee for preparation. In the meantime, read about state taxes as an expat and how to avoid having to file a state return.
