Recent Expatriation Tax Questions
My wife and I have been greencard holders since Nov 2006. We
My wife and I have been greencard holders since Nov 2006. We left the US for an assignment (I work for Shell) in the UK in May 2008 (so ~1.5 years after getting the green card). We lived in the UK until Sept 2010 (so ~2.5 years), and then moved to live and work in Oman until Sept 2013 (so again another ~2.5 years). In Sept 2013 we returned to the US, where we've lived since. When we first left the US in 2008 we secured a Reentry permit. When that expired, we have visited the US every 12 months, thus keeping our greencard status 'in tact'.
I recently learned about 'expatriation tax', or 'exit tax', that a person can become liable for when giving up the permanent residency status (or citizenship), but that that liability only kicks in when the person has had the greencard for at least 8 out of the last 15 years, and that years spent abroad in "tax-treaty" countries does not count towards the 8 years.
Over the period between getting the green card (2006) and present day, our net worth has roughly increased from 400k$ to 1,200 k$, and we have bought a vacation home abroad in that period. Other than the vacation home (~700k$), we have ~350k$ in stocks, and the rest on savings accounts.
Since we got our greencard in 2006 I have always appropriately filed US tax returns.
1) given that ~9 years have expired since we got our green card, but that we've spent ~2.5 years in the UK and ~2.5 years in Oman: when will we be liable for exit tax upon giving up our green cards? and
2) what would the exit tax (approximately) be in our case?
Ok Thank you answer. The next thing we would like to
Ok Thank you for the answer. The next thing we would like to know more about is "exit tax", the advanced tax that we heard of when someone gives up their green cards (that they have held longer than 7 year), how does this work? it would be odd to be hit

capital gain will not be realised? and in the case you have to pay the advanced tax on the house when still owning it, will you receive back that tax when re-investeing the same or part of the money in new real estate in United States? thank you, Eva
