How To File The FBAR
Tired of paying someone else to file the FBAR for you every year but not sure how to do it yourself? In this webinar, an expert will walk you through the process of filing the FBAR, which is free when you do it yourself. They'll show you the form, what information you need to provide, how to submit the FBAR online, and the filing deadline.

How To Get Caught Up On Filing US Taxes from Abroad
Did you forget to file a US tax return since you moved abroad, or have you been living outside the US for a long time (decades even!) but you've not been filing a US tax return? Join us to go over the IRS Streamlined Filing Procedure - the process to get caught up on your US tax filings. The good news is that you don't have to file for all the years that you missed, you potentially won't owe any US tax, and you might even be eligible for some money from the IRS depending on your circumstances.

Investing For Americans Abroad And Dual Citizens
Although this isn't a tax event per se, we received high demand to host a webinar on investing. It is really difficult for Americans abroad and dual citizens (particularly in Europe) to find ways to invest their money in the country they live in as well as in the United States. We often feel like we're stuck in a rock and a hard place, unable to open an investment account in some cases and save for our futures. In this webinar, we'll go over investing basics and the options available. Please note, this session will focus on European Union regulations but will cover basic investing principles applicable anywhere.

Retirement And Taxes For Americans Abroad
Are you starting to plan for your retirement, you're about to retire, or you're already retired? Ever wondered how taxes on your non-US pension works? Join us to go over common retirement tax issues like taxes on Social Security and how taxes on your US retirement plan works if you plan to retire abroad.

We encourage everyone to pre-submit their questions so that we shape the content of the webinar around what you want to learn the most!
If you are unable to attend the live webinar, there is an option to get a recording only, which will be emailed to everyone after the event.
