So, turns out that the IRS' online tax service don't work for me as an overseas person trying to meet their hypocritical (the US was founded on "no taxation without representation!" and we expats aren't represented) FATCA tax requirements... Their phone services are dodgy as - been on hold for nearly 2 hrs already (not toll-free), with one disconnect in after my first 1 hr wait, shortly after providing proof of identity to the operator. Sooo frustrating.


@lightweight I feel your pain. And sense of justice. Kids born in foreign soil to an American parent will have to file taxes even if they never set foot in the United States.
