How To Survive Tax Day As An American Abroad

This is a consumer focused webinar to help you save money on your tax preparation costs and make you aware of US government resources available to Americans abroad to file their US tax return. The aim of this event is to help you feel more confident to file your US tax return, help you decide if you should file yourself, use tax prep software, or hire an accountant. Also to inform you of your rights when it comes to dealing with the IRS, and debunk myths on the who, what, where, when, and why of filing a US tax return as an American abroad.

Federal Student Loans For Americans Abroad

Although this isn't a tax webinar, navigating paying off student loans as an American abroad is complicated especially with payments resuming last year. This webinar will clarify the options available to Americans abroad now that the payment freeze on federal student loans has ended and payments have resumed.

How To Invest 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.

How To Catch Up On Filing US Taxes from Abroad (Streamlined Filing)

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.
