Dual Citizen - Paying Taxes Working at an American School

Post Posted: Wed Aug 24, 2005 1:52 am

Does anyone know......?

As an American citizen, if I get a job teaching at an American International school overseas, in most situations I do not need to pay taxes under a certain amount during the first two years (or something like that.)

However, I have dual citizenship (Italian and American)... If I get a job in Italy at an American school, because I have dual citizenship, do I have to pay Italian taxes?

And if you have any suggestions on finding further information/laws on this sort of situation, I'd appreciate anything you might be able to provide.

Best,
Tourist5678

Hi Tourist5678,
welcome to Expat Focus.
Nice name but what means the Nr.?, never mind.....

You are asking something that most of the people do not like to talk: Taxes!
I don't know how exactly work in USA, but in Europe can be a bit more complicate.
Usually if you in a contry less then 6 month you are considered a guest worker and you will have facilitation on taxes in the working contry, but you have to pay them in your residence contry.
If you get a job in Italy you will also get an Italian/local contract and in this case you have to pay income taxes, unless you are already working in the states for this school and going to italy for few month, in this case deal with your employer to get the best result.
Mainly, it doesn't matter which citizenship you have, the main thing is: where you work is where you have to pay taxes.
My best suggestion is to contact some international accountat company like: Price Waterhouse Cooper (PWC) or Ernst & Young (E&Y), these are the biggest in Europe.
Good luck
Milly
