The excitement of an overseas assignment can sometimes be mitigated by the reality of the unique tax liabilities for US citizens working overseas, or for foreign nationals working in the US.   MJ brings decades of experience in expatriate tax planning and compliance, whether as a service for an individual, or as part of a benefit package offered to multiple employees with overseas assignments.

We can work in local time (even Australia) with our clients working overseas and take the time to explain the complexities of multiple jurisdiction tax regimes.  In addition, our membership in Prime Global, a global network of CPA firms, provides access to resources in foreign countries who can provide local tax regime insights when needed.
