  NEW IRS WEBPAGE FOR OVERSEAS CITIZENS

  The IRS has created a new comprehensive tax page at http://tinyurl.com/3996cx which is directed to U.S.
  citizens who reside abroad. This page contains basic tax information that Americans overseas need to know
  and also includes links to more detailed topics such as the foreign earned income exclusion, foreign tax credit,
  reporting foreign bank accounts, Fulbright grants, state taxes, and a myriad of others.

  Rather than navigating through www.irs.gov, this page will provide "one stop shopping" for U.S. citizens
  abroad. The intent is to provide answers to most of their tax questions in one place. The site also provides
  information on how to contact the IRS to get additional assistance.




  UPDATED COUNTRY SPECIFIC INFORMATION FOR MOZAMBIQUE

  The Department of State publishes Country Specific Information (CSI) on every country in the world.

  2010 U.S. CENSUS, APRIL—JULY

  The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States, and is required by the
  Constitution to take place every 10 years. Census information affects the numbers
  of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives and people from
  many walks of life use census data to advocate for causes, rescue disaster victims,
  prevent diseases, research markets, locate pools of skilled workers and more.


  When you do the math, it's easy to see what an accurate count of residents can do for your community,
  including better infrastructure and more services. In fact, the information the census collects helps to
  determine how more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding each year is spent on infrastructure and
  services like hospitals, job training centers, schools, senior centers, public works and emergency services.

  Although the only census forms that are sent outside the United States are to Puerto Rico, overseas U.S.
  citizens can follow the process on Facebook or Twitter. Please encourage family members in the U.S. to take
  part in the survey.
