American Tax Abroad
is a tax and consulting services firm located in Switzerland specializing in handling all U.S. tax matters for U.S. citizens and green-card holders residing abroad and for non-resident aliens with U.S. tax filing requirements.
U.S. citizens and green-card holders residing abroad continue to have an annual U.S. tax filing obligation if gross income exceeds the annual minimum filing threshold.
The U.S. tax authorities impose a tax based on citizenship and not on residency. The host country will most likely also impose their income tax based on residency in the foreign country. Compliance with the U.S. and host country tax laws often lead to a more complex tax situation for U.S. citizens and green-card holders living abroad.
There are provisions in the U.S. tax law that aim to minimize double taxation such as the use of the foreign earned income and housing exclusions, the foreign tax credit and tax treaties.
We can assist you in reducing your U.S. tax exposure through the optimal use of exclusions, credits and other reliefs.
We are here to help you navigate the rapidly changing tax laws and to stay compliant with your tax obligations.
