Message for U.S. Citizens: Tax Season Reminder from U.S. Embassy Kigali, Rwanda

Tax Season is here. Remember to file your income taxes!

The U.S. Embassy would like to remind U.S. citizens that most U.S. citizens are required to file their federal income taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by April 18, 2022.  If you are a U.S. citizen or resident alien living or traveling outside the United States, you generally are required to file income tax returns, estate tax returns, and gift tax returns, and pay estimated tax in the same way as those residing in the United States.  Your worldwide income is subject to U.S. income tax, regardless of where you reside.

Please visit the IRS website for U.S. taxpayers living abroad at the link below:
