How do I avoid double taxation as an American living in the Netherlands with a Dutch business?
This is one of the real misconceptions of USA taxation. The US has a tax treaty with the Netherlands. Accordingly, as a US citizen you will pay two taxes. Consider the following fiction. Remember the Netherlands has higher taxes than the USA.Tax on worldwide income to the US $50,000.Tax on income to the Netherlands $75,000.So you file both sets of taxes. You’d pay the Netherlands tax of $75,000 which gives you a credit of $75,000 to offset the US tax of $50,000 and thus you pay NOTHING to the US.Now this is an ideal world situation and it NEVER works out this nicely and is obviously much more complex - however based on my experience the real world results to not vary drastically from this.NOTE that you do have to file 2 tax returns. This is the usual situation that I find with ex pats from the USA so getting all upset about FILING two taxes is really a moot point.

Do I need to attach the tax form 1099-B to the form 1040 Schedule D?
This sort of question should be resolved by looking at the IRS’ official instructions for the tax form and year in question. You only need to attach such items as the IRS’ official instructions direct you to attach. Recently there has been a trend of requiring fewer attachments.For the sake of answering this specific question for this specific year, there appears to be no such requirement. The Form 1099-B was already reported to the IRS and the Schedule D instructions make no mention of attaching it. You may need to attach a “statement required under Regulations section 1.1(h)-1(e).” Id. lines 10 and 18.For actual advice on filling in your forms, consult a tax attorney or accountant.
How do you fill out line 5 on a 1040EZ tax form?
I suspect the question is related to knowing whether someone can claim you as a dependent, because otherwise line 5 itself is pretty clear.General answer: if you are under 19, or a full-time student under the age of 24, your parents can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are living with someone to whom you are not married and who is providing you with more than half of your support, that person can probably claim you as a dependent. If you are married and filing jointly, your spouse needs to answer the same questions.Note that whether those individuals actually do claim you as a dependent doesn't matter, the question is whether they can. It is not a choice.
