A revolutionary and simple tax software for U.S. expats
The MyExpatTaxes Story:
In 2015, Nathalie Goldstein moved from Silicon Valley to Vienna, Austria for work. Once tax season hit, she hired a tax consultant for $500 and found the tax process exhausting. The process involved sending a lot of forms back and forth, and the consultant gave incorrect info to the IRS (reporting that Goldstein was living in Australia, not Austria).
Thus, Goldstein decided to take matters into her own hands. She obtained her Enrolled Agent status with the IRS, and worked towards a tax solution for the 9 million Americans abroad. She partnered up with engineering masterminds Markus Finster, and Joachim Niederreiter, and created the MyExpatTaxes software.#
The MyExpatTaxes Software:
MyExpatTaxes empowers U.S. expats to stay tax compliant by making the process of filing taxes smooth and enjoyable. There is nothing quite like it in the world – thus, we like to say it’s revolutionary! Customers have the opportunity to do their own taxes by answering straightforward questions, and once completed, they’ll receive their finished tax returns ready to be downloaded and submitted – all within 30 minutes.
Goldstein and team’s service includes FBAR and tax forms for a flat fee of 149 Euros. Plus, the MyExpatTaxes software is backed up by a wealth of research and labor from expat tax expertise, along with a user-friendly look and feel.
As of 2018, the company is offering a beta release where customers are able to sign up through the waitlist available on their website. The full release is planned for early 2019, which will also offer U.S. expats to file local taxes for a select few countries through international tax partnerships. As you can imagine, the software is already making ripples in Goldstein’s founding city of Vienna, Austria, and is expected to make waves globally.
It’s for sure an exciting and revolutionary time in the global mobility and tax world.
