Expatriate Tax Returns has thousands of clients spread out across the globe. Each year we prepare and file U.S. tax returns for American expats currently living in dozens and dozens of nations around the globe. Oftentimes, our communication with our clients is more than a simple phone call or email message across seas to get all the necessary information before we submit the client’s expatriate tax filing. These communications are an important link back to the United States for these expats.
The 4th of July, no matter where an expat is currently residing and working, is cause for celebration. Sometimes we’ve noticed that our expat clients can feel homesick on U.S. holidays like the 4th of July, but we encourage all expats to celebrate Independence Day. Regardless of where you live in the world, you’re an American citizen and our nation’s independence day commemoration is still your holiday. It is a day on which we give thanks for our freedom and our liberties. What comes with those rights of course is the responsibility to pay income taxes.
So as we approach the 238th year of the United States of America’s independence, let us all be thankful for this amazing country — no matter where you are living today. Happy 4th of July from Diane Siriani and everyone at ExpatriateTaxReturns.com.
