An estimated 9 million Americans live outside the United States. Regardless of their country of residence, Americans face citizenship-based taxation. Because of this, they need to file an annual tax return to the IRS. Unfortunately, traditional tax software isn’t optimized for citizens abroad. MyExpatTaxes fills the gap.
Since its founding in 2018, MyExpatTaxes has helped tens of thousands of expats file their US tax returns, get caught up on past due returns, and ensured that money owed to expats is claimed!
The in-browser app makes filing quick and straightforward for our clients. A new user can file their tax return in about 30 minutes. And a previous client can log in and file in as little as 15 minutes! Additionally, if a client has a question, help is there! Using our live chat option, users can have their questions answered by a tax professional as they file.
One of the biggest problems MyExpatTaxes has solved is the ability to submit their tax returns directly to the IRS electronically. As most expats won’t owe taxes, their balance often comes to $0. Traditional tax software doesn’t allow users with an even balance to eFile. With MyExpatTaxes software, 99% of users can submit electronically. Meaning faster, sometimes instant, confirmation from the IRS, so our clients can move on and enjoy their lives!
