The burden of US persons overseas

Welcome to episode 5 of the American Overseas Podcast 

I’m Linda Mabelis and in this episode I am talking about the burden of US persons overseas and the initiatives initiated by the organizations Americans Overseas and American Citizens Abroad in search of sustainable solutions for Americans abroad with my guests:

What burden are we talking about? From American expats to coincidental Americans, they are all facing the same issue: and that is having to deal with citizen-based taxation.

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 the US tax system 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 about the US tax system 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 bitcoin tax obligations.
