Some Americans Abroad Get Transition Tax Extension

 In Tax News

Per IRS Notice 2018-26, taxpayers that qualify for the automatic two-month extension to June 15 under Treasury Regulation 1.6081-5, will have this same two month extension applied to the first payment due under the transition tax.  In general, this extension applies to Americans living in a foreign country.
