Looking for Recommendations of US Expat Tax CPA

Postby CatherineS » Thu, 13 Feb 2014 1:17 pm


Can any fellow US citizens recommend a CPA in the US that can is good with working with expats on filing taxes? We just moved to Singapore from Chicago and this is our first time filing abroad so we are looking for assistance. We had one contact but he fell through unfortunately.

Am also looking at various alternatives and came up with the following so far:

Artio Partners (I understand that they advertise on this forum):

Taxes For Expats (TFE): ... ional.html

US embassy's American Citizen Services (ACS) list (there are 5 currently on the list): ... apore.html

Then, of course, there are the big name firms, e.g. PWC, E&Y, etc., especially if you've got an employer paying the fee for you.

Some may be tax attorneys or Enrolled Agents (EA), instead of CPA's.
Which you choose depends on what you need, e.g. a tax attorney for possible legal advice or representation, or an EA if simply for tax filing preparation.

By the way, there are quite a few worldwide LinkedIn recommendations for both Artio and TFE: ... iz_product ... 71/product

The comments seem genuinely enthusiastic for most.
I didn't find any complaints for either online.

Hope this helps you get started.
Let us know if you find any others that look reasonable.

I've used my CPA in Houston for years and she has done a very good job. And, my tax US forms are complicated due to the fact that I own/owned companies in four separate countries. PM me if you are interested.
