Amending 2010 taxes See Bond To Ensure Payment , discussed later. Amending 2010 taxes The sailing or departure permit issued under the conditions in this paragraph is only for the specific departure for which it is issued. Amending 2010 taxes Returning to the United States. Amending 2010 taxes   If you furnish the IRS with information showing, to the satisfaction of the IRS, that you intend to return to the United States and that your departure does not jeopardize the collection of income tax, you can get a sailing or departure permit by filing Form 1040-C without having to pay the tax shown on it.

Amending 2010 taxes You must also pay any taxes due for past years. Amending 2010 taxes If the tax computation on Form 1040-C results in an overpayment, there is no tax to pay at the time you file that return. Amending 2010 taxes However, the IRS cannot provide a refund at the time of departure. Amending 2010 taxes If you are due a refund, you must file either Form 1040NR or Form 1040NR-EZ at the end of the tax year. Amending 2010 taxes Bond To Ensure Payment Usually, you must pay the tax shown as due on Form 1040-C when you file it. Amending 2010 taxes However, if you pay all taxes due that you owe for prior years, you can furnish a bond guaranteeing payment instead of paying the income taxes shown as due on the Form 1040-C or the tax return for the preceding year if the period for filing that return has not expired. Amending 2010 taxes The bond must equal the tax due plus interest to the date of payment as figured by the IRS.
