How can the Expat Tax Blog Help You?
As an expat you’re naturally far from home. There’s lots going on where you are, and it’s so easy to forget about your income taxes. The thought of taxes may overwhelm you, and you just want them to go away. To make matters worse, tax laws are confusing, complicated, and stressful. How are you ever supposed to know what forms to fill out, what boxes to check, and whether or not you even have to file taxes?
We created this blog for you. We want to help you with your taxes and make your life abroad as stress-free as possible. We can save you time and frustration just by answering your questions and doing your taxes for you. If you are busy working abroad, you can spend more time focusing on your life and your job, and let us take care of the rest. You can sign up for a free tax consultation or contact us at any time with any questions.
The Expat Tax Blog is run by a Michael Mertz, a CPA, MBA, and expat for 20 years. He’s not just some bean counter who doesn’t care about you. Rather, he’s an accountant who knows what life is like abroad and wants to help you as he helps hundreds of other clients– with a personal connection and an understanding of expat life. Here is a client testimonial. You can read some more over at our testimonials page.
“Mike has a detailed knowledge of the tax code, especially as it applies to expats, and I have found his work to be highly professional. He’s also been very generous with consultations, always available for a phone conference or in person when he’s in town. Mike’s been preparing my taxes and advising me for three years running and I plan to retain his services indefinitely.”
