Rota Gateway Mall Tax Office. General information
Ask specific questions for free with no commitment on your part. As well, you will have the opportunity to participate in our public information session at the Rota Getaway Mall in Jnaury/February.
We will start collecting the documentation needed to prepare your U.S. Individual Tax Return from January 15th through June 30th, from 11:00 to 18:00, Monday to Friday. The complete list of documents can be downloaded HERE.
Remember that the earned income and pensions for all current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces are excluded from your Spanish and Portuguese Tax return. However, if you have spent more than 183 days in Spain or Portugal, you will be considered a “fiscal resident” of these countries, and you must file a tax return in these countries first.

Military Tax Extension
File Form 1040 by April 15th. If you are a U.S. Person, you qualify for an automatic extension of two months until June 15th without filing the form 4868.
This extension gives you an extra 2 months to file and pay the tax, but interest will be charged from the original due date of the return on any unpaid tax.
With the Form 4868 you will have an extension until October 15th. We request the extension for all our clients, for free. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need the extension to file until October 15th.
Military Tax Deductions
US Tax Consultants helps military personnel and families take advantage of tax deductions and support for special tax situations that those serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard are entitled to. Many service members make the mistake of taking the easiest route and use the shortest, simplest form. This could cost them dearly in savings.

New Tax Bracket Rates for 2022
As part of its annual adjustments based on inflation, the IRS increased the income thresholds for its tax brackets by thousands of dollars. These changes are effective for the 2023 tax year. The U.S. has a progressive, or graduated, tax system, so income isn’t taxed a flat rate. Instead, it’s taxed at differing rates — 10%, 12%, 22%, 24%, 32%, 35% and 37% — as it rises past certain thresholds, or tax brackets.. If you need to know the details of the new tax brackets please check our article on our blog: The IRS adjusted its income tax brackets fo 2022.
Do I really need a professional Tax Preparer?
Tax preparers need an active PTIN to file tax returns on behalf of their clients. PTINs identify these professionals to the IRS and protect them from fraud.
A professional tax preparer can save you time and money, can answer your questions and resolve issues. The tax code is complicated: Professional tax preparers keep up with the yearly changes. With a professional tax preparer, you gain peace of mind, as mistakes can be costly. What’s more, working with a professional reduces the risk of an audit, not to mention that a professional tax preparer takes the burden off your doing your taxes yourself.
