What to know before you start.

If you are a U.S. citizen living outside of the United States, you’ll need to file with the IRS. And some non-U.S. citizens still need to file. Not sure? Learn More.

When do I need to file by?

The U.S. filing deadline is April 15th. However, if you live outside the U.S. then you have until June 15th to file but interest will accrue from April 15th if your return has a balance due.

Will I owe taxes?

Not neccessarily. Filing a U.S. tax return doesn’t mean you will owe any taxes to the government in Canada or the U.S. Our experts will help you get the most from your return.
