Xpatax Solutions LLC
The United States is one of the only countries in the world that taxes all of its citizens and permanent residents (“green card holders”) regardless of where in the world they live or earn income. U.S. citizens and green card holders are required to file their tax returns with the IRS each year, even if they live abroad and pay taxes in another country. While there are a number of ways to prevent paying taxes to the US on German income such as exclusions, credits, deductions, this does not remove the requirement to file a return. In fact, applying these reliefs can make filing a tax return significantly more complicated.
Xpatax Solutions specializes in international and expatriate U.S. tax advising and preparation. We provide support with U.S. taxes to U.S. citizens living and working in Germany as well as non-US citizens required to file U.S. tax returns.
