ExPats Tax Service
ExPats Tax Service
If you're a US citizen or resident alien of the United States and you live abroad, you are still taxed by the IRS on your worldwide income. Although it may be tempting, you must not ignore your U.S. taxes.
Every U.S. citizen - regardless of whether they are living in the U.S. - must file a tax return with the federal government.
The tax situation for expatriates is often complicated and frustrating. Many variables affect how much expatriates pay IRS - from whether you deduct your foreign taxes, to your host country, to your employment situation.
At Brigim Accountants and Advisors LLP, we have experience handling the Expat Taxes and our service will offer following tax services:
U.S. Tax Returns - We prepare your U.S. income tax return, including the most common schedules and forms.
State Tax Returns - Depending on which state you most recently lived in, you may need to file a state return.
Small Business Tax Returns - We assist small business owners, self-employed individuals, or folks with significant rental property with their returns.
Online Filing - When you're living in a foreign country, it's not practical to send forms and documents back and forth through the mail. Our highly secure, fully encrypted Client Portal enables the quick, free, and safe transfer of files between our office and yours.
Foreign Bank Account Reporting - We file the FBAR form for individuals who had above a certain threshold in a foreign account.
Compliance - It's not uncommon for ex-pats to fall behind on their taxes. We help you sort through the paperwork, forms, and rules, and get you back in compliance with the IRS.
Consulting - If you're unsure of your need to file federal or state tax returns, give us a call. We help you get clear on your situation.
These are the most common ex-pat tax services we offer - but it's not our full list. Please contact us to discuss your needs if you don't see them reflected here.
