Well, yes. Because the US tax system as it is applied to US Persons who live outside the US is a tricky beast. Took me years to lose the pride and admit that the little knowledge I had was simply not good enough, and that asking for help didn't mean I was an idiot.
But cost was always an issue for me and from what I hear from Flophouse readers, I wager that cost is likely to be an issue for you, too.
So I'm pleased to pass along this resource from Greenback. They are holding two free tax webinars next week at times that are hopefully convenient for you. And they say they will answer questions - how cool is that?
I signed up for the one on Tuesday at 10 PM Japan time. (The registration page has a nifty feature where it shows the meeting times in your timezone). Here's the info and I hope it helps.
