Q: Since I was a way for the last 20 years, I have not file any taxes. I returned to the US early this year. I filled
3 years income taxes supported by my employer documentations. What should I do next to clear all taxes issues. I'm employed now.
A: It is unclear where you were and what you did during the last 20 years. If you earned money and maintained bank accounts outside the US, you may have income tax, Report of Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and other filing obligations. I recommend you retain tax attorney and obtain a solid advice before any problems develop. The information presented herein is for general purposes only. It is not intended to, and may not be construed as legal, tax or accounting advice. For specific advice, please consult a tax attorney in person. Good luck.
