Expat Tax Preparation

Whether you’re already an expat or you’re planning a move abroad, you have more to think about than just adjusting to a new culture. Every U.S. citizen—whether or not he or she is living in the U.S.—must file a federal tax return. The tax situation for expatriates is often complicated and frustrating. Many variables affect how much you have to send in—including any foreign taxes you paid, your employment situation, and your host country. We can walk you through all the variables as they apply to you and work with you to minimize your tax bill. Our easy-to-use client portal allows you to upload your necessary documents online from anywhere, without the hassle of printing or relying on “snail mail.”

 

Employee stock and option grants

Granting equity can be a great way for start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike (and companies of any size in the middle) to reward employees. These forms of compensation can be very lucrative for their recipients, but it’s extremely important to understand not only the specific type of equity or equity option you’ve been granted, but also the various tax implications for each type. It’s a daunting landscape: Whether you’re dealing with restricted stock, an incentive stock options (ISO), a non-qualified stock option (NSO), or something else you need to understand the security and the tax considerations that come with it .

Ignoring the tax implications of your equity award can be a grave mistake, resulting in potentially large and unexpected tax bills at the worst times. With stock options, a variety of taxes can come into play—including income tax, capital-gains tax, the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT), and net investment tax.

This is why it’s critical for you to speak with a tax advisor before exercising an option or selling an employer’s stock. We have a long history of helping founders, tech-sector and long-tenured professionals alike with the tax planning issues that come with these forms equity compensation, changes in employee benefits and concentrated stock positions.
