US Taxes

Hello All-

I am from Virginia, USA. I am married to a Swiss guy and need to file US and VA state taxes. It is my first year in Switzerland. Does anyone have a favourite accountant or tax prep service they can recommend? I live near Zug. Thank you!

Re: US Taxes

Hi!

I recommend Aconta accountants. The main accountant is Swiss and his wife is American so he is very familiar with such tax situations. He is very thorough and we have used him for the past two years with no problems! for reference, my husband is Canadian and I am Swiss.

We've used this guy for the last three years. He really knows his way around both Swiss and US taxes and has been really great.

Re: US Taxes

if your tax return is simple (just salary), you can try with turbo tax or H&Block as it should be cheaper and quite straightforward.

I tried Turbo tax, but I would not let me get passed that part where I am married to a non-American
