• Do I Need to Report the Transfer or Rollover of an IRA or Retirement Plan on My Tax Return?
• Can I Exclude Income Earned in a Foreign Country?

Once you answer the questions, you'll get an immediate response to your specific tax issue. ITA is accurate, and you can print the answers for your records. Simply type “Interactive Tax Assistant” in the search box on IRS.gov for easy access to the answers you need.
