Hi all, I am flying for a carrier overseas in the Middle East.
Just curious as to how should I go about filing my Tax Returns when tax time comes around?

I heard (don't quote me on it) that if your income is less than $85,000 you don't need to pay taxes, if you work overseas. I guess I still gotta file something.
Also, the way I get paid is as follows:
1) Base Pay
2) Flt. Allowance
3) Housing
4) Misc.

So just curious if there are any IRS websites or if you wise folks have some tips please feel free to share.

Best Regards,

Fly safe everybody,

Check out any "expatriate" websites and they might answer some of your questions.
