Welcome to episode 6 of the American Overseas Podcast 

I’m Linda Mabelis and today I am talking about the impact of the US tax system on Americans Overseas as seen by tax professionals. We will be sharing opinions on short and long-term developments and hearing about cases about expats and accidental Americans

I will be talking with:

  • Daan Durlacher, experience expert, and
  • Robert W. Wood is often listed as a top 10 Tax lawyer for tax controversies and civil cases. Also a widely published author on Forbes and other renowned media. Mr. Wood is known for explaining and demystifying complex tax concepts.

Americans Overseas

We, the founders of Americans Overseas, were born in the Netherlands and obtained our American nationality through our (American) mother. When we heard about this for the first time around 2013, we were in total disbelief (it can’t be true!), anger (how can they do this?), fear (am I going to get fined or pick up other problems?), and panic (what should I do?).

It is (unfortunately) true that there is an additional American tax levy. But there’s no information from the local government, and when approached, the consulate referred us to the IRS, and the IRS was impenetrable.

That’s why we started this initiative to help people from all over the world by providing proper information to avoid unnecessary panic, and offering help free of obligation and free of charge. If needed, we have a network of affordable professionals (accountants) who can help you with your tax obligations.

If you have more questions about American citizen-based taxation, you can contact us at Americans Overseas.
