Client Testimonials

I have been using TurboTax for years but encountered an investment situation that TurboTax is not designed to handle. After searching the web for local CPAs/Accountants and chatting with a couple on the phone I was unable to find someone locally with sufficient experience in my particular situation with whom I felt comfortable. Deciding to broaden my search beyond my local area I discovered Gary's website and a detailed discussion with options pertinent to my situation. During a brief phone conversation, Gary answered all of my questions, explained how we would exchange information online and gave me an estimate for preparing my current tax return and an amended return. It was a pleasure working with Gary. He delivered everything he promised with no surprises.

Expat Tax

 

Expat CPA offers services for Form 2555 and Form 5471

Gary Bode, CPA: Expatriates commonly file Form 2555, Form 5471, Form 1116 and FBAR. (910) 399-2705.

Hi, I’m Gary Bode, CPA. One surprise result from running this website? The calls for help on international expat tax issues. Which is why we developed a Virtual CPA office to serve you or your company no matter where you live. Here are the issues we deal with most often.

  • Form 2555, the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. This affects US citizens living and working abroad. The IRS demand s you report worldwide income but then allows you to exclude over $100,000 of it (this figure includes the standard deduction and exemption on Form 1040).
  • Form 5471. If you have an interest in a foreign corporation, you must report your dealings with it to the IRS. With the recent IRS emphasis on foreign financial transactions, the $10,000 late fee is now enforced. There are currency exchange issues and accounting conversion issues.
  • OVDI: Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Initiative. We prepare the required back tax returns, like Form 5471, FBAR and 1040, and the actual application.
  • Form 1116. You get a tax credit, not just a deduction, on Form 1040 for foreign taxes paid. Sounds simple, but Form 1116 snarls things up nicely – go figure.
  • Form 8938, Statement of Foreign Financial Assets.
  • FBAR: reports foreign bank accounts that pass certain thresholds to the IRS.

This website has dozens of posts on the above expat issues. Of course we offer a free initial phone consult. (910) 399-2705.
