Background: I am a UK citizen currently resident in New

Having lived here a number of years lawyers have given me the option of extending as L1-A or applying for a Green Card.

HI I am a green card holder since March 2001. I worked consistently
I am a green card holder since March 2001.
I worked consistently until I fell pregnant in 2008.
My mother fell ill (cancer) at the same time. I returned to Australia to help her through treatment.
Since then, I have been flying to and fro Australia more and more. Esp since 2012 when my mother was diagnosed with recurrence of cancer (which was declared terminal and inoperable). For nearly three years, my daughter and I have been here in Australia, flying back to USA every 6 months or so (staying for a couple of weeks) in order to satisfy green card.
I had not intended to 'abandon' my green card but since my child was born and my mother fell sick, my life has been predominantly here. I now realize, I do not want to go back.
1. I began to work here from 2011 (paying tax as I earned)
2. I filed my income tax return here as a resident (as I'd been here more days then in the USA)
3. The only income I have in the USA is income from renting out my house.
Q: I would like to file my 1 407 but am unsure what date to put on it as having 'abandoned' my green card.
1. If I date it as 2011, do I have to file an 8854 and date it as as of 2011 or should I wait til the USCIS give me an 'expatriation date?
2. Will the exit tax be based on the 5 years prior to 2011 or now?
3. is the exit tax based on NET worth?
4. If I have not satisfied my federal tax obligations, how do they calculate my exit tax?
