By No Means Just Canada for Expat Tax Return Prep
As we said, many of our clients are from Canada, and we have a considerable knowledge of Canadian tax laws together with contacts with many Canadian accountants. But it is not just Canada by any manner of means. We handle a considerable amount of international tax situations – all of them different depending on the country involved – and many of our clients are US citizens who have assets or business interests in other countries such as Israel, China, Western Europe, and India. If these business interests create income overseas, it can result in a liability for tax in the US whether you are a US citizen, a foreigner residing in the US, or a permanent resident.
One of the most common situations we come across is FBAR compliance. This simply means Foreign Bank Account Report and was introduced in 1970 as a means to combat tax evasion. As you may well imagine, it can be extremely complicated, but you will be pleased to know that it is another of our specialties. There is also OVDP which has come to the fore in recent years and means Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program.
There are other situations that can arise, all of which need special handling by an accountant who understands the relevant tax laws. For example, you could be a permanent resident in San Francisco but still technically be a foreign citizen of somewhere like the Philippines, China, or Israel. You might be here on a student visa.
