Are you a citizen of the United States who lives abroad? Maybe you’re thinking about moving from the United States, and aren’t sure how this affects your tax filing requirements. Or perhaps you have been tax non-compliant for many years, and don’t know how to get caught up with the US government without incurring huge fees. You could be a self-employed “digital nomad” who works from many different countries, moving wherever you want at your leisure. No matter what your situation, you probably still owe taxes to the US. If you don’t file correctly, you could be missing out on important opportunities to legally reduce your tax burden.
The United States of America is one of only two countries in the world that imposes taxes based on citizenship, not on where you live or where your money comes from. How can you ensure that Uncle Sam gets his due without suffering enormous penalties on the road to becoming tax compliant? By combining the right strategies for citizenship, residency, banking, incorporation, and physical presence in other countries, it is possible for most people who work abroad to legally keep their taxes at $0.
In this book, certified public account, US immigrant (and eventual emigrant), and perpetual traveler Olivier Wagner teaches listeners not just the philosophy of being a worldly American, but how to use 100% legal strategies to make your life easier and less burdened by taxation. Wagner even takes you step by step through the specific forms and schedules you will use to file your taxes, no matter where you are.
