Am i and expat? Safer to fil the extensions?

how does the IRS define one to be an expat? I have NOT renounced citizenship, but i simply reside/lived outside the US for more than 330 days of the year, but my address on my tax return has always been US-based.

1. I dont know if I will get the auto-extension.  does it hurt to just file for the extension as a precaution?

2. I’m almost finishes completing my forms on TTax online.  If I file an extension, will it reset what i have filled out and make me do it over again?

3. Is TTax going to charge me for the extension?  Is there a way to do this at no cost on the gov. site?

If you will have federal taxes owed then you can pay the taxes owed on the IRS website using Direct Pay and the reason being an extension payment.  You will get an automatic extension from the IRS.  However, you will need a US bank account to pay the taxes owed using Direct Pay - https://directpay.irs.gov/directpay/payment?execution=e1s1

 

Or you can use the TurboTax website to e-file an extension request.  There is no charge for this and it does not make you change or start another online tax return, if you already have an online return.

Go to this TurboTax website to e-file an extension request - https://turbotax.intuit.com/irs-tax-extensions/
