Default Foreign property taxes

Hey everyone,

I have been searching for any other threads but couldnt find exactly what i was after. Everyone has been helpful on here so here goes!

I moved to the US four years ago on an L1 visa and recently got a greencard. I have a property in the UK which i rent out and pay tax on it in the UK. My wife has had a huge panic that we havent filed taxes properly here and was talking about "schedule e". I wanted to start here if anyone had any experience of this

Thanks!

Default Re: Foreign property taxes

The rental income & expenses would have been reported each year to the IRS on Schedule E. If your US returns have been incomplete, most folks would use the IRS SDOP - Streamlined Domestic Offshore Procedures - to catch up.https://www.irs.gov/individuals/inte...-united-states

This will especially relevant if you sold a property in the UK whilst US resident and overlooked reporting the US taxable foreign mortgage gain as well as any gain on the sale or/and if you have bank and financial accounts in the UK (including pension plans) that were not reported on FBARS and Form 8938.
