    Inaugural tax talk

    When do children need to start filing? And do they have to file the FBAR? Do I have to file taxes if I have no income? What if I’m self-employed? These questions and many more were part of a spirited and wide-ranging discussion at our inaugural tax talk on June 13th. Daniela Räkers, a Rheine based German accountant and licensed American CPA, sought to calm nerves about this very complicated and confusing topic. The discussion was both enlightening and at times baffling as we waded through abbreviations and terminology such as FBAR and Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, but in the end participants agreed that it was an evening well spent. Be on the lookout for another tax talk next year!

    Germany-wide Post-Election Discussion

    Join Democrats across Germany on November 4 to discuss where things stand 24 hours after the polls have closed. We'll take a look at current situation, especially in swing states like Pennsylvania where mail-in ballots couldn't be counted until Election Day, and hear from YOU! How are you experiencing the election? What "take aways" can already be identified from the 2020 election season?
