Expat Tax Online
Before we started our online service, we asked over 1000 Americans living abroad what they wanted from an online tax service.
Fair prices that are clearly displayed, no extras piled on top, you only pay the first price and that’s it. If you’re not satisfied with the service, we’ll give you a refund, 100% of it.
Our CPAs and EAs that are managing your tax return must be expat specialists with many years of experience in actual expat taxes, not just local US taxes, the differences are significant.
Ok, it’s not fun
They said our online service had to be great value, fun and easy. Well, we think we’ve done a top job on the price and we’ve made it super-easy. We didn’t make it fun, sorry.
