Am I more likely to be audited as an expat?

At a glance

Are you more likely to be audited as an expat? Learn more about your audit risk and two new expat tax compliance campaigns with the experts at H&R Block.

Recently, the IRS announced two new campaigns focused on expat tax compliance: the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion Campaign and the Individual Foreign Tax Credit Campaign. As part of these campaigns, the IRS will address noncompliance through several methods, including audits. However, audit risk is determined by a number of factors and your audit risk will depend on your facts and circumstances.

How can H&R Block help? With our Advanced Notice & Audit Support service, we will receive copies of your IRS notices directly from the IRS. Once we receive a notice, one of our tax advisors will explain it to you and work with you to reach a resolution with the IRS at no additional charge.

H&R Block Expat Tax has always been fast, efficient and answers my questions. For 10 years I filed everything myself and never received a refund. Now I get a big refund every year! Wish I had known sooner. I highly recommend HRB Expat Tax.

I live in Kenya now and run my own online digital marketing business. Using this service has helped me save tons of time and energy on my taxes. I am also really relieved that they will help if I need it during audits. It really makes living abroad and doing taxes a million times better.

I have been using H&R block for a few years now. I live abroad, but don't make a lot of money. Filing with H&R block is as painless as doing taxes gets and my Advisor is wonderful and answers all my questions.
