Expat Advance Notice & Audit Support

Get expat tax notice and audit support from the experts at H&R Block.


Even U.S. expats can get audited.

Tax notices must be responded to in a timely manner but living abroad can make that difficult. These notices are often delivered late and sometimes they’re not delivered at all causing potential penalties and interest.

We also understand that tax laws are complicated and dealing with the IRS when living overseas can be challenging. With H&R Block, we help solve and avoid these problems with our Advanced Notice and Audit Support service for expats.

  2. Any tax notice is sent directly to H&R Block’s expat office and is uploaded to your H&R Block portal for review.
  3. An H&R Block advisor will contact you, explain the notice and next steps, and provide notice support as needed.
