Zurich based tax return specialist for US and Swiss Taxes...

Hi all,

I had (what I thought) was a very good accountant from the Netherlands who specialised in US tax returns (her background was EY expat auditor). At any rate, I need suggestions for accountants in Zurich specialising in US and Swiss tax returns. My confidence in my current Dutch accountant is not that great as she had zero clue how to handle Pillar 2 contributions and whether a 8621 IRS form was required.

For those who have the same issue, it is not required thanks to the IRS mandate in Dec 2016. That said, I had to do this extensive research myself! My accountant would have filed the 8621 and charged me an arm an a leg for it (it is a nightmare to prepare apparently!)

We will be here for awhile and I need to find a suitable accountant for our tax needs. Any recommendations would be most welcome!

Many thanks in advance...
