Americans living in Croatia (or other CEE country)


The United States is one of the countries that currently tax its citizens on worldwide income, however, it is the only developed country that taxes its citizens solely on basis of citizenship, regardless of where the person is residing.


For the citizens that are living abroad, it brings a great compliance burden and increases the risk of double taxation. As long as one holds a U.S. citizenship, there might still be a filing obligation, regardless of permanently living abroad, having no U.S. source income or no valid American passport. If you are a U.S. citizen, you are required to file a U.S. income tax return and report your non-U.S. bank accounts (so called "FBAR"). Nonetheless, in most cases such taxpayers will not owe tax in the USA, however they are required to file.


This also applies to Croatian nationals who were born in the USA or who have American parents but have since only lived abroad.


How can we help you?


As a U.S. citizen you might have a filing obligation. If it turns out that you do, we can make this easier for you.


We can assist in one of the following ways:

  • by preparing the tax return for you; we will optimize your tax position and you will simply review the return, sign it and mail it to the IRS; or
  • by explaining it to you how you can prepare the return by yourself; we will explain which forms to use and in what way you should prepare them. We will also explain how to optimize your tax position.



For all interested U.S. taxpayers we are offering one-hour informational meeting with one of our experts FREE OF CHARGE.
