Does the word “taxes” make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Because, same.
When you’re an American living abroad, having to file expat taxes can be one of the biggest hassles, a vestige of home that just won’t let you go. After all, the US is the only country in the world besides Eritrea to tax based on citizenship rather than residence. But I digress- it’s a necessary evil to keep our hands on that navy blue passport that allows us to return home to see our families and eat copious amounts of queso (or maybe that’s just me).
