Americans Overseas was founded by Daan Durlacher (left) and Michael Littaur (right) who where born in the The Netherlands but had never lived or worked in the US.

How we started

Like many Americans who live abroad, we were diligent about properly filing in our country of residence. We were unaware of any tax obligations related to our American ties. For us, this all started with a letter from our bank informing us about FATCA. As this information was new to us, it quickly led to questions like “what does the IRS do”, “what does FATCA stand for,” “do I really have to file a US tax report”, “can’t I just give up my passport”, and “where can I find my Employer Identification Number.”

In the search for information

Little information about US tax compliance for US citizens living abroad was available online. We also found out that filing an FBAR, 1040, or entering any of the IRS streamlined programs should be done with great attention to detail. We observed that filing incorrectly or with the wrong procedures could lead to grave complications and even penalties. That is why we advise that you do not file until you have the right information about your specific situation from a specialized advisor.

our mission

Americans Overseas wants to make sure your path to compliance is a more simple, direct and cost-efficient one. We do this by providing information on tax matters for Americans living abroad. We connect Americans worldwide to the right tax specialists for their situation.

Finding a specialist advisor

In our costly and exhausting process of finding the right tax and legal experts, we realized we had not only accumulated a mountain of knowledge but also built up a solid network of experts. This could be of great benefit to other Americans in similar situations.
