Double Taxation US-UK


J

Juan

I am looking for some info regarding my complicated tax
situation... Any help is appreciated.

I am a US citizen, for most part of the year I have been
working in the US and in September I will move to the UK
where I will be working for a UK company (being paid in
Sterling in the UK) for 2 years and 3 months.

I have checked the double taxation treaty but it does not
clarify much to me...

Where do I have to pay taxes for my salary US, UK, both ?
Does this depend on the amount I make ? Is there any relief
for double taxation ? I assume that there will be
differences for 2004 (earnings in US and UK) compared to
2005 (working only in UK).

To make it even harder, I have been working abroad in 2004
and therefore I do not think that I will reach the 183 days
in 2004 in the US...

Please help !!!
Tx,
J.

On the 1040 for the US and on whatever tax form the UK uses.

You take a foreign tax credit for UK taxes paid.

Nothing changes if you were here for 183 days. You're a US citizen. If
you're in the UK as a resident for 330 days out of any one year period you
can exclude a portion of the wages you receive from US income, roughly
$80,000. There are other possibilities as well but you would be wisely
served in obtaining the services of someone who works in this area.
