Thank you for your interest in joining our network as a US tax partner. Americans Overseas is an independent US tax referral service. We proactively reach out to US citizens living outside of the US for a longer period of time that recently learned about their US tax obligation. We operate in all major European countries.
Two Americans living outside of the US founded Americans Overseas. They were taken by surprise when they heard about their US tax obligation. It was very hard for them to find correct information, reliable advice, and affordable help. After going through a long and costly process, they decided to start helping others by informing them and connecting them to proper tax preparers. Below, a short explanation of how we work:
Our motto is: inform & connect. Clients who approach Americans Overseas have learned of their US tax obligation. Clients can call or email us with any questions they have that are either answered by us or a tax professional (SSN, renouncing, taxes owed, etc.). We feel it’s very important to start this journey well-informed. We have also developed a knowledge base that is continuously updated with the latest, most frequently asked questions. After a client is informed, they can be referred to a US tax partner. The referral only takes place after their express consent. Some people only want information and no referral. We give clients a price indication in advance, so they don’t pay too much but also know what to expect.
The US tax partners in our network receive clients that have been informed by us what to expect. This means clients that have no filing obligation, no intention to file, or only have some questions, are filtered out and helped by us. This saves the preparers a lot of time, so they can do what they’re good at prepare tax filings. It’s sometimes overwhelming for a client to find out they have a tax obligation, and this leads to clients becoming unresponsive towards the preparer. This can reported to us, and we will contact the individual to see if they want to continue, stop, or be referred to someone else. This ensures both the client and the tax preparer get the service they want.
Most importantly, our partners provide good, friendly, reliable, and affordable service against a fixed price agreed upon in advance. This is very important as many Americans Overseas find out for the first time in their life they need to file and are very anxious. They need an expert who will tell them like it is, not unnecessarily worry them, and provide them with a fair estimate.
If you’re interested, please apply to Americans Overseas. We will contact you for an intake call. It’s important that your rates on basic streamlined procedures and yearly returns are clear for us. We absolutely understand that custom work requires custom rates. Good to know, 90% of our refer clients have complicated financial situations involving ownership, a company, PFIC’s, and sometimes cryptocurrencies.

– Your working experience in filing US tax
– Rate for preparing a standard yearly return (1040+FBAR) and streamlined procedure
– Experience with different procedures (streamlined/O.V.D.P./returns/P.F.I.C./other)
