Complex Expatriate Tax Returns Is Our Specialty
Many firms provide tax preparation services for American citizens living abroad – but as you may have found already, when you ask them to prepare Form 8938, FBAR, Form 5471, Form 8621 or sometimes even Form 1116 they will not take you on as a client and even if they do, they are not as fully versed in the intricacies and nuances of these forms to minimize your tax liability. Heck, they won’t even attempt to minimize FBAR penalties or help you file late ones – but we will because we have successfully helped many expats in similar situations.
