I’m Olivier Wagner, a CPA and Enrolled Agent, as well as the Founder and CEO of 1040 Abroad. I and my team of U.S. tax experts have helped thousands of Americans abroad to choose and set up a correct business structure for tax purposes. We do it by showing legal ways to save money on your U.S. taxes while running an online/remote business. We also assist our clients to file federal income tax returns and become tax compliant after not filing for years.
I founded 1040 Abroad In 2012 to help regular Americans who are seeking advice on what to do with their tax returns in unconventional settings. The same year I decided to transition to a life of full-time nomadism around the world to have a freedom and experience of running a full-time online tax firm to help fellow U.S. expats. Everyone in 1040 Abroad understands the challenges of living life outside your home country and we truly enjoy providing our best tax help to the clients.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU
First of all, if you are wondering why you need to pay U.S. taxes, then you should know that the USA is one of the two countries in the world which has citizenship-based taxation. It means if you are a U.S. citizen or a Green Card Holder abroad, you are subject to U.S. tax on your worldwide income. Yes, it applies to you even if your business has nothing to do with the U.S., you have all your assets abroad and even if you have never visited the U.S. but was born as a dual citizen.
If you are a seeking a business tax advice as self-employed American or a U.S. digital nomad living abroad, we can help you with:
- planning your tax strategy to legally save money on your returns (such as running an offshore business on the side, being self-employed, or have investments overseas).
- all-inclusive U.S. tax preparation services: federal and state tax returns (including Form 1040 and all standard schedules). As well as additional forms, such as PFIC, CFC, and Foreign Trusts.
- advising and helping to set up a legal structure which suits best for your own business (non-U.S. corp, LLC, S-Corp etc)/
- counseling you where it is better to set up your business for tax purposes etc.
Our team of U.S. expat tax professionals will provide you the legal tax solutions which bring massive U.S. tax benefits.
