Filing your US taxes abroad is an absolute breeze with MyExpatTaxes
Living abroad as an American can be an exciting time. Not only are you getting exposed to a new lifestyle and culture, but there is a sense of freedom and opportunity.
On the other hand, being an American abroad means you not only need to abide by your host country’s laws, but the US’s as well.
In every US passport is the statement that every American, living on land or abroad, needs to report their worldwide income to the IRS every year. This is such a momentous task that many Americans end up paying hundreds of unnecessary dollars for CPAs and tax companies to do their taxes for them.
Yes, expat taxes are tricky and complicated. That’s why an American abroad from California decided to do something about it. The MyExpatTaxes expat tax software has been built for Americans abroad and specifically helps them put financial power in their hands.

Made for expats, founded by an expat
The CEO of MyExpatTaxes, Nathalie Goldstein, first struggled with expat taxation when she lived abroad as an American in Vienna. When tax season hit, to her disappointment, she had to pay over 500 dollars for a tax professional to do her US taxes.
As we all know, US taxes can be a pain - especially when you have to sign and mail papers back and forth across oceans. The tipping point was when Nathalie’s CPA wrote the wrong address and sent her tax forms somewhere else entirely (mistaking Austria for Australia!).
MyExpatTaxes: Revolutionary tax software for Americans abroad
Frustrated with the difficulties of expat taxation in our modern-day world, Nathalie decided to do three things: Hire a team of expert IT engineers, become an enrolled agent, and start her own expat tax company.
MyExpatTaxes came into being to help the nine million Americans abroad, like Nathalie herself, become tax compliant without the stress. Thus, her team created what is now an award-winning expat tax software, exclusively for American expats.
Easy to use and kind to your wallet
One of the main perks of the software is its affordability. Expats’ wallets are taken into account, since the company realizes expat life is hard, and not everyone can afford a professional to handle all the US tax forms.
Therefore, with intelligent software and a dedicated team of expat tax professionals, MyExpatTaxes costs just 149 euros. It’s so smooth and simple to use, it’s relatively common to get your US taxes done in 30 minutes or less.
