The Americans Overseas network consists of US tax partners based in your country of residence as well as in the U.S. We make the match based on your preference, complexity of your case, and waiting times. Local advisors have more waiting time due to limited capacity.
Usually, a local preparer will meet one time in person if requested by the client. The intake and the rest of the compliance process are done via phone and email. US-based tax advisors are very well up to date on the constantly changing US tax code and IRS programs.
They offer local phone numbers and video calling to ensure personal service and contact. All advisors have knowledge of both systems; local and US. The US tax system is generally more complex and leading when going through the compliance process.
