If you are living in the United Kingdom but are originally from the United States you may have a difficult year of taxes.

Keep in mind that these regulations may change at any time, and even slight changes which are currently happening may cause the specific mode of residence analysis to shift as well.
The best bet, as expatriates in the UK, is to contact Personal Tax International to see if they can assist you. They won’t assist seasonal workers, students, or NHS workers.
An additional source for expatriates in the UK is the HM Revenue & Customs department. Since the laws and taxation regulations depend heavily upon a number of factors, contacting the department directly will ensure you have the most up to date information and will know what to do once tax time arrives.
When in doubt, contact HMRC.
