A buddy of mine has been on the 737 for over a year. I can also try to ask him any specific questions you might have.

What kind of experience can we get hired with? I know their minimum requirements, but realistically, can we get hired with 1500h Embraer 145 and 3000h total?

The minimums are there for a reason. If you meet them, you qualify. Put in an app and see what happens.

Good luck

I highly advise you to seek advice from a qualified tax professional and definitely not an open pilot chat forum where there are thousands of armchair experts with zero qualifications desperately awaiting to give you bad advice. If you are an ExPat you should already know this.

Good grief guys, it's a simple question with a simple answer.

That answer is "yes, you must declare your income".

Paying tax on it is the part that can get murky depending on your specific scenario. That is where you need the tax advice.

Some of the bigger US tax preparation companies have expat tax experts. H&R does. I didn't use them but I know someone who did and was happy.

There is some good expat tax info on these forums if you look, including from a couple of people that posted in this thread.

*************** isn't a bad place to start as well. The vast majority of Americans that I worked with overseas got audited, many twice, including me. It is best to plan ahead, which of course I didn't do. Luckily I got it right. Just lucky.

There is also a lot of garbage that to the uninitiated might sound credible:rolleyes:

These pilot *****boards are good to find out what questions they might ask you during an interview..., or where to get a good burger while you are abroad...., but for as delicate an issue as taxes..., it's well worth it to spend a few hundred bucks and talk to a professional (preferably a tax attorney) that has experience dealing with expat tax.

Apologies for the continued thread drift, but here's the answer on how to structure yourself. Why not be like Apple?

Do not take the following as advice, always consult a tax professional who specialises in US Expat taxes...

Okay, after the disclaimer, here is the basics you must be aware of as a U.S. expat:

1) You MUST file a tax return every year as an expat. DO NOT (!!!!!) try to be tricky with your taxes, or think you can get away with under-reporting or hiding money. Recent U.S. laws, and changes in enforcement practices, have made it virtually impossible to hide money and have made the penalties for trying to do so extremely harsh. File your U.S. tax return properly and under the guidance of an experienced professional. And make sure that professional specialises in expat taxes as there are far more regulations, potential gotchas, and potential deductions than there are for domestic tax filers. Expat taxes are a very specialised area, so do not skimp on it.

2) Be prepared for issues with banking. FATCA and some provisions of the Patriot Act have made overseas banking for expat Americans quite difficult. FATCA imposes some pretty sever penalties for foreign banks who do business with "U.S. Persons" and fail to report the required account information to U.S. authorities. Yes, if you open an account overseas, under certain circumstances the bank is required by U.S. law to report your account information back to the U.S. government. Because the penalties for failing to make the proper reports are so severe, many banks are refusing to do business with American clients. This has left many U.S. expats without a bank account. The Patriot Act also places some restrictions on your U.S. based accounts when being accessed from overseas. Some U.S. banks have closed accounts when they have determined the owner lives overseas, even if the account owner has maintained a U.S. address. The State Department Federal Credit Union will now open a U.S. based account for American's living overseas and that has provided some relief.

3) You may have significant tax issues if your employer provides a retirement plan for you. Again, contact a tax professional for advice.

4) There are other forms to file outside of regular tax forms if you maintain an account overseas. FBAR is the big one, but there may be others.

Again I cannot emphasise this enough, you need to consult a tax professional. The above list is not comprehensive by any means. But many expat Americans are completely in the dark about what there responsibilities are, and what the potential penalties are if you fail in those responsibilities. So I post them to help make you aware. Ignorance of these laws can, and have, destroyed many peoples lives financially. Before taking a job overseas, Google FBAR and FATCA and educate yourself. Take a look at American Citizens Abroad (ACA) for some good information and resources like tax professionals.

I've been curious how the recruiting is going what with all the "stuff" that's been going on there. I've heard at least a handful of guys put in their resignation last week. We all thought (at least the 777 guys) we'd be flying about 40 hours with the loss of the US flights but the FAA ban was lifted in record time amazingly.

Not quite sure what's going to happen....
