US tax return

Postby DietCokefan » Tue Nov 28, 2017 2:07 pm

Hi, I'm looking for someone to prepare annual US tax returns for US citizens living in the UK. I've used someone remotely for a number of years but she is retiring.
Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

I have been using H&R Block Expat tax for the last couple of years. They are surprisingly good, and a bargain compared to the others I met. If you want someone non-remote I have previously used PJD Tax.

I have used Greenback Tax for several years and been very happy with them. https://www.greenbacktaxservices.com/ They are a tax prep company specifically for Americans abroad.

I specifically worked with a man named Kevin Costello, though he has now branched out on his own. I would highly recommend him too http://www.kcostellocpa.com/

Good luck! x

We've used a US tax guy for about 20 years, both while here in the UK and when I moved from Singapore back to the US before moving here. He is ex-EY I think and has done a good job and is easy to deal with. He's based in NY. Paul Horvath is his name and I can send his contact information if you'd like.

The American magazine (https://www.theamerican.co.uk/pr/index.php) has good articles & links to tax advisors. The articles on planning for retirement (no matter how far off that may be) are helpful to aid discussions/think thru; as where you retire will impact taxes (inheritance tax is much higher in the UK).
