**NO CONSULTATION FEE - Your H&R Block expat tax advisor is available to speak with you regarding your tax return during any stage of this process.

At H&R Block, your expatriate tax specialist will ask questions to assess your unique situation to determine your U.S. tax filing needs. After providing tax information to your advisor, you will be given an upfront fee quote based on this assessment. Our pricing varies depending on the required forms but following is a guideline:

Standard: $350

The standard fee for a U.S. federal return is $350, which includes the forms and schedules most common to Americans living abroad. This fee also includes up to 20 total (U.S. and foreign) brokerage transactions.

Although most expatriate returns qualify for the $350 standard fee, pricing may be lower if your tax return is very basic. For example, if you are single, married filing separately, or married filing jointly with one spouse working and have foreign wage income only then your fee is $250.

Additional Fees

Additional fees apply if your return requires certain forms and schedules such as:

  • State tax return
  • FBAR (foreign bank and financial accounts)
  • Rental properties
  • Small business income
  • Foreign trusts
  • Mutual funds
  • A discount is available if returns for more than one year need to be filed

We stand behind our work.

Included in the fee at no additional charge is:

FREE Second Look® Review*

We’ll review your past tax returns – up to three years - to see if there are any missed credits or deductions.  We could find money for you that others missed!

Satisfaction Guarantee

You don’t pay for your tax preparation until you’re completely satisfied.

The H&R Block Guarantee

If H&R Block makes an error on your tax return, we'll pay resulting penalties and interest.

IRS Tax Audit Assistance

Audit Assistance is a complimentary part of the H&R Block Guarantee. We'll help you understand the position taken by the IRS or other taxing authority and assist you in preparing an audit response. 

Tax Audit Representation

For an added fee, you will be represented by one of our trained CPAs, Enrolled Agents or tax attorneys who will communicate with the taxing authority on your behalf in an audit proceeding. 

 

* Results vary. All tax situations are different. Fees apply if you have us file a corrected or amended return. The IRS allows taxpayers to amend returns from the previous three tax years to claim additional refunds to which they are entitled. Applies to individual tax returns only.
