I'm a US / Canadian dual citizen living in Canada. Since age 9, I have only visited the US once and basically ignored my American obligations. I have never worked in the US.
Apparently, the US / IRS is weird with it's tax law and even though I've never worked in the US, as a US citizen, I'm supposed to be filing US tax returns for every year I've filed Canadian ones. I do not expect to pay tax (there is a line item for income earned in a foreign country), I just need to become current with the IRS with my paperwork.
Looking online, there are services that will do this for me but will basically charge me $2,200+ to do it all for me because I go back so far. I'd rather just buy something like TurboTax for each year and do it myself ($50 x 8 years is $400, a lot less than $2200).
Can anyone recommend a US product that has versions back that far? or alternatively can anyone recommend a good US accountant/company that will deal with a Canadian by email/phone? or any other online service that will do it for say under a $1000.
