Too Early To Tell How Tax Reform will affect Expats

Posted on: November 9th, 2017 by Expatriate Tax Returns No Comments

As 2017 draws to a close, tax reform has become a priority for both the current administration and for Congress. Many of our clients are wondering, “How Will Tax Reform Affect Expatriates?”

We’ve heard a lot in the media about tax brackets for individuals and domestic corporations, but the truth is that we do not have much information yet about how the proposed tax reforms will impact the already complicated world of Expatriate Tax Returns.

Tax Reform 2017 for Expats

With tax reform, there are a number of variables in play for American expatriates. In September, Forbes speculated that corporations might only have to pay U.S. taxes on profits in the United States, but individuals might still be on the hook for their income worldwide.  Earlier this year, the conservative group Americans for Tax Reform called for the repeal of the FATCA, or Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, a 2010 statute.

The bottom line, however, is that tax reform will likely face many changes as it works its way through Congress. These tax reforms no doubt will affect Americans from Denmark to Dubai.  It’s simply too early to know if and how these changes, if signed into law, will affect you. What we can tell you is that Expatriate Tax Returns will continue to follow all tax changes to the letter, as we have since our inception. Filing a tax return as an American expatriate is not a simple process, and it’s best for you to consult with professionals like our team of skilled CPAs at Expatriate Tax Returns.  Please check back here on our Expat Tax blog for updates as the laws change and feel free to call our team with any questions at 877-382-9123.

I would like to give praise for the best tax woman I have ever had a chance to work with. My tax preparer, is a true professional in the sense of the words. She has done my taxes for two years now and I would not let any other person attempt to complete them. I want to thank the Expat tax company for caring for us the way they do.

Fortunately for me Expatriate Tax Returns can handle all my tax filing needs via email. Easy friendly and prompt. This was my first year using Expat and I was blown away by the service, speed and accuracy of my State and Federal returns. I submitted my W2 and 1099s and everything else to Diane on Saturday and by Monday I had my returns along with detailed instructions for submitting them.
