These US Americans abroad already successfully filed their US expat taxes online with MyExpatTaxes
“Your tax return has been electronically accepted by the IRS!”
You have no idea the joy that this brings me, especially after two rejections from them so far.
Our tax preparer retired last year, and as you can imagine, filing taxes between two countries and when you have your own business is no fun. I searched in vain for an affordable replacement, and I tried FreeFile, from the IRS, and it was complicated and my filing was rejected – and I couldn’t quite figure out why….
https://www.myexpattaxes.com/ to the rescue!
It wasn’t very hard, and it cost €150 (€120 with a referral discount), and the peace of mind now that it’s done??
Phenomenal service! I never knew how easy it would be to catch up on my back taxes while living in Sweden! You guys made my stressful situation feel like a breeze! Thanks again!
I was in a bit of a pinch this year. Professional tax-prep is usually a part of my expat package and I realized close to the filing deadline that perk had expired this year. I looked around for solutions and landed on MyExpatTaxes.
The process was extremely intuitive and they provided every IRS form I needed. The simplicity had me looking for “the catch”. Will definitely be a returning customer as it was a delightful experience.
note: I waited until the IRS confirmed my filing until I wrote this review.
I highly recommend MyExpatTaxes!
I was dreading filing taxes this year as it’s the first year my husband is an expat because we moved back to my home country last year, after I had spent 20 years in his country. The whole filing process was extremely simple, questions were answered very promptly and efficiently. We were delighted with the service and the price was affordable. We received our refund fairly quickly once our return had been filed and accepted.
Very happy and will continue to use MyExpatTaxes.
You guys saved my bacon!
You were the third online site I tried after giving up on completing my own (this year seemed more complicated than previous years…)
Your software was far and beyond the easiest to navigate. Great job!
Having returned to the UK after 25 years in the US, my taxes were quite complicated but these guys did an excellent job. €149 for the federal filing + €100 for a state filing, no hidden fees or suprise charges. The online questionnaire was very simple (much nicer than TurboTax) and the customer support was amazing – every email answered within an hour or two. I was quoted £1400 to do the same work by a UK firm, I’m glad I looked for another option. I have now received both federal and state refunds and can call myself a delighted customer!
Amazing service. Helped us become tax compliant after 15 years abroad (had no idea we needed to file if we were paying tax elsewhere.) Imagine the shock when we found out not only were we now compliant but we were getting an over 6k refund and were entitled to the stimulus package! The system was so simple and user-friendly and will use annually from now on!
Amazing easy to use software. It actually explains what you are doing in a simple way. Easily the best online expat tax service I have used so far! Any open questions were answered by their experts right away! I am kicking myself for overpaying for considerably worse service of other sites and lawyers over the years.
I used MyExpatTaxes for the first time this year, after having given up on other services which seem to cater to user who are far more knowledgeable about taxation than I. The MyExpatTaxes questionnaire is user-friendly and makes sense. The maze of the foreign tax credit and, worse, the alternative minimum tax, was easily and promptly navigated by a MyExpatTaxes expert. Yes, the service is more expensive than some others, but don’t let the price scare you–you will save time and be assured that the return has been very carefully reviewed by a tax professional.
MyExpatTaxes were super professional and helpful. Their prices were very reasonable, especially when compared to other companies out there, and their interface was simple but easy to use. Furthermore, their customer service was prompt, knowledgable and understanding. I was initially skeptical but was quickly won over. By far, the best experience I’ve had with doing my taxes!
Yay!! I’m all caught up on filing my taxes! It was never so quick and easy. MyExpatTaxes goes above and beyond what anyone else has to offer at a reasonable price. The form was clear and simple to understand and all of my questions were answered by their FAQ’s.
The site is super easy to navigate & the entire process is incredibly user friendly. I had to play catch up with my taxes and this made a stress experience all the more less so. You essentially need your end-of-year salary sheet, answer simple questions, and boom boom boom. All good!
Had all the forms filled out and downloaded in two days, and I just needed to sign.
Very fast responses, a warm and patient team– I cannot recommend MyExpatTaxes enough. I will definitely stick with them for next year– if they’ll let me! Excellent, excellent service, and very fairly priced. Merci!
I didn’t file U.S. returns for a long time. The main reason was cost, always $1,000 for some so-called specialist to spend a few minutes on my otherwise plain-vanilla filing. Then I discovered MyExpatTaxes and it was off to the races. Great service and a very affordable price. Now I’m getting caught up on many filings for the same price as it used to cost for just one!
For any American living overseas, I absolutely cannot recommend MyExpatTaxes highly enough. Whether you are self-employed (as I am) or an international or US firm employs you, their platform makes it so easy. And that’s not a word I typically use when talking about US taxes.
To file your return, MyExpatTaxes walks you through a series of questions to assess your situation, and then you plug in the numbers. Once you finish, your return is reviewed by an authorised tax agent and filed (generally electronically). It’s apparent that they have spent a great deal of time and testing on their platform and interface and in my opinion, they have done a brilliant job. It almost makes doing your taxes fun (almost!).
I will definitely be using their services next year. They are extremely knowledgeable and responsive. The website is user friendly and they processed my taxes in record time!
I cannot recommend MyExpatTaxes highly enough. I spent 10 HOURS (including 2 hours on the phone with CPAs) trying to force the TurboTax system to calculate my taxes correctly. Thank goodness I knew enough to know that it was incorrect or we would have paid money in that we didn’t owe!
After a Google search and some reading, I decided to try out MyExpatTaxes. Since they are geared specifically for expat taxes, they asked all the right questions and I was done in less than an hour! An amazing experience from start to finish. I will never use any other service.
Professional and prompt, even amidst the craziness of this particular tax year! Markus won over my business my answering thoroughly and in the friendliest manner my questions about the coronavirus stimulus, even before I was a paying customer.
This past year I had 4 different freelance jobs and one salaried job spread out between 2 different countries. Was this a problem? Not in the slightest.
I’m not someone that normally tells friends about businesses but I’ve recommended MyExpatTaxes to all my fellow expat friends. More expensive than TurboTax and its kin by a little, sure, but MyExpatTaxes has knowledge and service that pays off in spades.
I never knew getting my US taxes up to date would be so easy. I entered all my information into their web app over the weekend (it took about 2 hours) and my draft taxes were ready on Monday morning. A small issue was rectified quickly and that was that – my taxes filed and a huge item on my to-do list done. And, I’m getting $2400 in refunds that I never knew I was entitled to (!!!) plus should get the 2020 stimulus money. Well worth the cost (about £620 for 4 years taxes). I can’t describe what a relief it is getting this sorted!
This is the tax software I have been waiting for!
Unlike any other country in the world, American expatriates still have to file taxes, even if they do not live or work in the United States. The questionnaire-style approach made the convoluted process easy and quick. The price is also an excellent value, far cheaper than using an accountant.
They’re very helpful and easy to navigate. I appreciate their prompt service and great tax service. Doing taxes from abroad was definitely quicker and simpler than I anticipated with their help!
MyExpat Taxes did a fantastic job. My return was difficult, but was a breeze with their support. Nathalie walked me through all the steps with ease, could not be more patient, helpful and with a great Price.
I would highly recommend MyExpatTaxes and can’t thank them enough.
Very straightforward to get my taxes completed. Any questions I had were answered extremely quickly even at weekends.
Very happy with the service will be using them next year too.
This solution was so easy and way less expensive than other options I´ve tried before. It was straightforward and simple. I like that they have different payment tiers depending on your needs. They were so helpful in answering questions promptly and offering whatever information they could to make the process smooth and easy. Highly recommend!
I was looking for a new tax preparer and was directed to MyExpatTaxes by an online review of tax services and software for Americans abroad.
The interface was easy to use and the experience was quick and painless. I discovered after paying that I had made a few mistakes and had some questions about the draft they prepared. They got back to me and made sure my questions were answered and that I could fix my mistakes before anything proceeded. At no point in the process was I shut out of being able to change some of my answers if I discovered a mistake. This was really important to me.
What really impressed me was the way the staff answered my questions and put me at ease. No tax preparer has EVER done that for me before. For that I plan on using MyExpatTaxes next year as well, and recommending them to my friends. Thank you!
Wow. I’ve looked for a service like this for years! All the “big” brands are ridiculously expensive, especially if – like me – you only have a 1040EZ to file. But it’s still a lot of hassle from outside the US because there’s no efile option. ‘My Expat Taxes’ is less expensive and much faster than any other service I’ve used in the past. I highly recommend them! Clear communication and wicked fast turnaround. Let me put it this way – my taxes are filed and confirmed with this service before the H&R guy acknowledged my request to file.
MyExpatTaxes is extremely helpful and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to catch up with their back taxes.
They were fast and professional. I will definitely use them again next year.
I am terrible with taxes. Never understood them and probably never will. As such, I have a habit of avoiding filing. This year I found myself utterly stressing out about this very avoidance after realizing I had not yet filed the two previous years.
Lost and frustrated at the exhuberent prices of other services, I felt I would never get them done. Ended up coming across MyExpatTaxes and after seeing the extremely reasonable price I took the dive.
Could not have made a better choice. Filing was almost immediate (seriously, they prepared the filing of my taxes before my first support ticket could even be processed 🙂 ) and answers to my (very many) questions were quick and always extremely friendly, even when I felt like I was bothering.
Special shout out to Nathalie for her amazing patience and kindness. I really hope you know how much stress you took off my shoulders and how much I appreciate your help. You do a great service for American expats and I can not express my gratitude enough!
I can’t recommend MyExpatTaxes enough. They were fast, responsive, personable and professional. Their pricing is also fantastic.
Taxes are all caught up which is a large relief. Thanks Nathalie and Markus!
After years of fighting with unsatisfying and expensive tax return providers I am very happy to have found MyExpatTaxes.
Quick and friendly replies to all my questions, fast service even if the deadline was near while there probably was a lot of other work for Nathalie as well – and all that at an affordable price.
I can highly recommend their service and will definitely continue to work with them.
FINALLY an easy and quick way to file US taxes from abroad!
My old accountant who I’d been using Stateside retired last year, so I’d been putting it off since I filed for an extension last April, but the time to file suddenly crept up on me. In a slight panic, I did some searching online.
After filling in an introductory questionnaire, followed by making a reasonable payment and then finally answering a short series of questions, MyExpatTaxes gave me an almost immediate initial response, and now, a mere 24 hours later, my worries are over. And to underscore my enthusiasm, I’ll just add that after I signed and sent them my final approval of the documents, I received a very kind and cordial reply… From a REAL person!
So yeah, I HIGHLY recommend these cats for any ex-pats across the “big pond!”
Prior to finding MyExpatTaxes, I had researched a lot about finding someone familiar with both US and Spanish tax laws. I truly wish I had found MyExpatTaxes earlier, as I wasted so much time and energy with other options.
I am very happy with customer service, care, and professionalism of this company, and thank God, finally, someone decided to help expats with their taxes without ripping them off!
I will not hesitate to refer my other expat friends as well.
To say that I’m SUPER GRATEFUL to MyExpatTaxes would be an understatement. Apart from the very user friendly software and remarkable price what really stood out for me was the astonishingly high quality customer service. They were truly kind, patient, quick to respond to my many questions and dedicated to helping me and when you’re dealing with the stresses of taxes, those qualities are worth GOLD. ✨🥇✨
They prepared the full package of the Streamlined Procedure (meaning past 3 years tax returns and 6 years of FBARs, plus the current year tax return and FBAR). I had the unpleasant surprise of finding out I have to also file Form 8621 due to shares I have in a PFIC. MyExpatTaxes referred me to a company they collaborate with that specializes in this complicated form, which was also much appreciated!
I want to thank especially Markus and Natalie. 💐 You guys are the best 🙂
MyExpatTaxes made my life as a US citizen living abroad so much simpler. It only took me about 15 minutes to fill out the easy-to-understand online questionnaire, and I received my completed tax forms to review the next day.
The friendly staff also replied promptly to all the questions I had along the way. And the price is more than reasonable!
I strongly recommend this service to any US expats looking to save themselves plenty of time and hassle.
I’d happily recommend MyExpatTaxes!
They made filing my US taxes for 2018 very painless and also prepared my FBARs. I contacted them with only a few days left to file my US returns, and they managed to get everything filed within the deadline. They have been very responsive throughout the process.
I’ll be using their service again next year!
