US Tax Services

US Individual tax compliance and consulting advice within the heart of Europe and in Switzerland

Every year, increased reporting requirements are being implemented for U.S. citizens residing overseas, creating a real risk that the average individual who may be unaware of the U.S. worldwide tax regime runs afoul of severe failure to file penalties. With FATCA imposing a significant disclosure burden and the IRS’ delegated authority to enforce these requirements, it is vital for U.S. taxpayers abroad to ensure the completeness and accuracy of their U.S. tax forms prepared by competent CPAs and IRS Enrolled Agents while coordinating with our Swiss and European counterparts for the optimal tax strategies.
