It is imperative that you keep copies of what you file each year! The IRS recommends that you keep your records until the “period of limitations” for that return runs out. The period of limitations is the period of time in which you can amend your tax return, or that the IRS can audit you, and perhaps assess additional tax. The period of limitation that applies to most of our international population is three years.
