Feb 19, 2018 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM - US Expat Tax Seminar for Americans Living Abroad presented by PwC


Join AmCham Abu Dhabi for our annual US expat tax seminar. This seminar by experts in US expatriate tax issues is a "must attend" for anyone interested in the unique tax filing obligations imposed upon US individual taxpayers living and working abroad. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, so bring your questions.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Recent US tax reforms and the impact on individuals - comparative analysis between 2017 and 2018
  • Eligibility for the foreign earned income and foreign housing exclusion
  • Foreign financial asset reporting requirements
  • Eligibility for retirement contributions for expats
  • Estate and gift tax overview
  • Tax planning opportunities
  • Becoming compliant with US tax filing obligations and the programs available

PwC Speakers:

Following the seminar, the Chairman of AmCham Abu Dhabi's US Working Group will provide a short presentation on advocacy efforts made in the US and in the region and will highlight the strategy dealing with Washington DC. This interactive session will provide Americans living in Abu Dhabi and abroad an opportunity to voice their opinions on issues related to expanding the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion; banking burdens; and will focus on policies and strategies that promote and increase exports from the US, which in turn supports US jobs, competitiveness, and economic growth. The Committee looks forward to meeting you, and hearing your ideas and opinions.
