WHY WE DO IT
We get it. Because like us, you moved to Germany to enjoy an unparalleled exposure to international culture, try your hand at working abroad, or maybe just eat Schnitzel whenever possible.
But along the way you learned that you still had US tax reporting obligations, and terms like FBAR, FATCA, foreign-earned-income tax credit, or PFIC started popping up. Having to pay taxes while living abroad is almost like an added cost, or tariff, on your dreams, your Wanderlust.
This is where we can help. For a flat fee that will apply to most situations, we'll take the guesswork out of your annual filing requirements and give you peace of mind. No one wants to be on the wrong side of the IRS. Let us help you get and stay compliant.
