Additional Expat Tax Preparation & Services Information
Our pricing is tailored to meet your unique situation – from the simplest returns to the most complex. We're very competitive with local or U.S.-based accountants and a much better value than large accounting firms. Before we start, we'll provide you with a precise fee quote. Assuming there are no additional forms or complexity once the process begins, your fee will be the same as your upfront estimate.
Generally speaking, with simple employment income and some bank account interest only, the typical price for our expat tax filing is between $300 and $500 USD. Additional costs will apply for:
- State tax filing requirements
- Foreign investments
- More than 5 non-U.S. bank or financial accounts
- Rental properties
- Income from self-employment
- Ownership of businesses and trusts
We specialize in US expat tax preparation—from the simplest of returns to the most complex. These are the expat tax services we offer:
Federal tax preparation and filing
If you filed federal taxes in the U.S., chances are you'll need to file them abroad. Our experts will file your expat taxes for you and keep you posted every step of the way.
State tax return preparation and filing
Depending on your unique situation, you may be required to file a state return. We can help you determine your requirements and file your state expat taxes for you wherever you are in the world.
FBAR filing (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts)
If you're a U.S. citizen or resident with money in a foreign bank account, we'll help you understand your filing requirements and guide you through the process of filing and staying compliant.
Past-due tax returns from prior years
If you're behind on any of your expat taxes or FBAR filings, we can help you get back on track in no time with our streamlined filing process.
Staying on top of IRS notices while you're abroad can be tricky. Leave that to our experts, and if anything comes up, they'll provide assistance and keep you in the loop on everything.
Free extension filing
Luckily for expats, the IRS grants an automatic two-month extension until June 15 for filers living abroad. If you need any additional time, we can request an extension until October 15 at no extra charge.
Tax consultations and advice
Working or living abroad adds complexity to your taxes. Our highly trained team of CPAs, EAs, and tax attorneys can help you understand the ins and outs of expat taxes to prepare you for filing. Tax consultations for general inquiries are available July through March.
Local tax return preparation (in some countries)
We have clients in over 170 countries, so we're familiar with many of the international tax laws. Depending on where you live, we may be able to help you file your local tax return. Live in Canada? We can easily file your U.S. and Canada taxes together in one place.
Alternatively, file your U.S. tax return in one of our offices around the world.
