I don’t have Social Security Number. Does that matter?

< 1 min

Not having a Social Security Number doesn’t mean anything with regard to your US tax obligation.

The tax obligation is based purely on your US citizenship. To file your tax forms, you will require a Social Security Number. This is not the same as your passport number. The US has a procedure to obtain your SSN. Please have a look here.

Can you file taxes without a Social Security Number?

We, the founders of Americans Overseas, were born in the Netherlands and obtained our American nationality through our (American) mother.

When we heard about the US tax system for the first time around 2013, we were in total disbelief (it can’t be true!), anger (how can they do this?), fear (am I going to get fined or pick up other problems?), and panic (what should I do?). It is (unfortunately) true that there is an additional American tax levy. But there’s no information from the local government, and when approached, the consulate referred us to the IRS, and the IRS was impenetrable.

That’s why we started this initiative to help people from all over the world by providing proper information about the US tax system to avoid unnecessary panic and offering help free of obligation and free of charge. If needed, we have a network of affordable professionals (accountants) who can help you with your bitcoin tax obligations.
