Expatriate/International Taxation


I read your profile and I think it is totally cool that you have offices both here and in London. I am starting my own tax prep practice for this coming tax season and I am currently sitting for the EA exams. I have been doing some research on international taxation and I really want to develop my practice around preparing tax returns for US expatriates long term. Do you have any experience or advice in this area? If so what is the best way to make yourself known to international clients? Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Also, could you recommend any CPE, seminars, etc...on this subject?

Thank You,

Thank you for the input. It seems like a really interesting niche that is not over-saturated. I am definitely going to pursue it further, but I will take my time.

I'd like to (tentatively) invite you to join a club I'm in that provides US/UK technical support for dual US/UK expatriate tax preparers with small businesses - you sound like your business is small enough to join - the biggies (USTaxFS/Buzzicotts/FrankHirth) aren't members - email me offline -


Thanks for the information

Charley, thanks for the info regarding coconut oil and moderation. I will definitely keep that in mind. The professor from U. Maryland was pretty positive about it. I wish I could remember her name but she was interviewed on the show I saw. This was a relatively young lady. Also, regarding pumpkin seed I need to go to the farmer's market more often because they sell them unroasted and I have bought them in the past and roasted them at home. Take care.

I had to look that one up on the internet. Is that EFA obtained from Borage herb? Or I guess borage seeds. It's interesting because I believe the famous Essiac herbal tonic (from Canada) has as its active ingredient borage herb. Thanks for the information. CrowJD 20:51, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Very interesting

That's very interesting, now I can understand why it's so expensive. Again, thanks for all the information. Take care. CrowJD 23:37, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

My gaffe!

It was only after I had thanked you for meeting us American English speakers and writers "at least halfway" languagewise that it dawned on me that **not a one of us** is making any effort whatsoever to meet *you* even part of the way! I apologize/apologise for the slight that I didn't even intend. How's that for awkward Yank graciousness?

I got the "Blighty" part, but the rest...? Guilty? Locked up? And what level of slang is that?

Reflect-O-Lite jpg

Back in October, you asked why your jpg had been deleted. I don't actually know; however, I can guess. A lot of the spam the site gets involves spammers posting jpgs and then posting spam that pulls in the jpg. So whenever Kevin has time, he goes through and does a mass delete of jpgs that look spammy - and he's doing it fast, because it's not like he's got tons of spare time, so I would bet that your jpg got swept up in that.

I actually just noticed the broken link today, and pulled that link...replacing it with a note that there used to be a jpg there. You could re-upload the jpg if you like, and relink it (use "edit this page" and remove my italic line, add the link back in). My recommendation would be to name the jpg something not at all spammy, like your user name or something, and then label the link with "Reflect-O-Lite." To label a link, you type in the two open brackets [ and [ and then the link, and then a bar (which looks like this: | ) and then the label, followed by the two end brackets ] and ]. Then, only the label displays in your post. Hope that helps.
