Avoid double taxation, find a qualified CPA for your local and U.S. tax return. Get expert guidance to navigate complex tax laws efficiently.

Preparing a U.S. tax return can be a complex task, especially for Americans living and working abroad.

It is crucial to find a competent Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who specializes in handling tax returns for expats. Here are some tips to help you choose.

Expertise in International Taxation

When selecting a tax advisor, ensure that they possess in-depth knowledge and experience in preparing tax returns for Americans living abroad. They should be well-versed in the unique challenges and regulations associated with expat taxes. Look for professionals who have a track record of processing numerous returns for expats each year and prioritize continuing education to stay updated with the latest tax laws.

Verify Credentials

It is important to confirm that the tax professional you choose is registered in the IRS’s Directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers with Credentials and Select Qualifications. This verification ensures that the CPA or Enrolled Agent (EA) has undergone the necessary training and meets the required standards for standard tax preparation.

Signed Tax Return

Before finalizing your choice, inquire or verify that the tax preparer will personally sign your tax return with their own name and Tax Identification Number (PTIN). This adds accountability and ensures that the preparer takes responsibility for the accuracy of your return. The IRS recommends e-Filed returns (if possible), this way they are processed quickly and refunds are paid in a timely manner. 

Effective Communication

Good communication is key to a successful tax preparation process. Make sure that the CPA and their team maintain clear and timely communication with you throughout the entire process. This includes being responsive to your inquiries and addressing any concerns or questions you may have. A lack of effective communication can result in incomplete or incorrect tax returns, so prioritize a tax professional who values open dialogue.
