Expat Tax 101: US and French Taxes


Join Democrats Abroad France for this special event with international tax expert Isaac Barchichat, CPA, to discuss the basics of US and French tax filing requirements for Americans living in France. The aim of this event is to educate you on your basic tax filing obligations and commonly asked tax questions such as:

  • When is the US tax filing deadline for Americans living outside the US?
  • How do I navigate the French tax system?
  • Can I open a French pension as a US citizen?
  • Do I have to pay capital gains tax to the IRS when I sell my home in France?
  • How much do I have to earn before being double taxed?
  • Do I get double taxed if I'm self-employed in France?

This event is for you if:

  • you have questions about filing US and/or French taxes as an American residing in France 
  • you just moved to France from the US and you're unsure of your tax obligations
  • you haven't filed for decades
  • you're scared to face your tax filing obligation or don't know what questions to ask to get started
  • you've filed for years but you're not sure if you're doing it right, or
  • you've filed every year but you've wanted a straightforward answer for a specific issue.

Speaker: Isaac Barchichat, CPA, International Financial and Accounting Expert, Monceau CPA.
