Why Do Your Tax Return With Us?

Why not save some money and do it yourself or stick with the tax preparer you had in the US?

Well, neither are experts in expat taxes like we are.

DIY Software

US expat taxes are not as simple as going through a TurboTax or TaxAct questionnaire. These programs are made for the typical US-based tax payer, not for expats facing complex international issues.

To do your taxes properly you must dive deep into tax forms and IRS publications, spending hours trying to get it right, and there will always be that uncertainty.

US-Based CPA

The tax accountant who did your taxes when you were living in the US is probably awesome. For domestic US tax returns. However, he or she likely doesn’t have experience with the unique aspects of expat taxes.

You might miss out on uncommon deductions or exclusions that we would spot immediately.

We have amended hundreds of expat returns done by qualified US-based preparers who do not know the US expat rules. We have seen so many errors that we include a review of your last three years of returns in our price.

By amending, we got refunds for hundreds of clients and saved them from audit risk from improperly filed returns, saving them thousands of dollars in fines.

Nate Lassiter

An amazing company to work with. They saved me thousands of dollars of tax money paid in previous years with another irresponsible accountant. They have become my go-to accounting firm given my digital nomad needs.

Ivan Kreimer

We have pretty complicated taxes … and really needed somebody who knew international taxes and expat tax law. We've had a really good experience working with Vincenzo and his team. Strongly recommend working with them.

After struggling to find a CPA who could work remotely and fully digitally, I came across Online Taxman referenced in a few different digital nomad groups. Now that my personal and (online) business taxes are filed, I must say that I'm very impressed and will certainly be a long time customer. Vincenzo and his team communicated promptly and left me with the feeling that I was in good hands. Their processes and tools made it easy to submit/review documents at every step along the way. All my questions were answered quickly and fully. Maybe it sounds too simple, but these guys really provided great overall customer service (which seems to be lacking in the industry). Thank you!

I contacted the Online Taxman a few years ago to understand my tax requirements living overseas and they have given me amazing service through the years. I know that when I have questions or do not understand certain items that I can just ask.

Killer company—I've been working with them the past couple years, and they've saved me tons vs. my past returns and always have helpful, timely responses to my questions. Highly recommend!
