The International Tax Nerds at Schwartz International team with individuals, companies of all sizes and other accounting and law firms to provide practical international tax, compliance and legal advice.
We live and breathe international tax daily, and since we’ve lived in various countries, we understand the diverse cultural challenges you face.
We partner with you through every stage of your cross-border activities making sure there’s a strong foundation. You want to get your money in and out easily and efficiently reducing headaches and tax drag. We help you maximize your time and investment whether you’re “Inbound” into the US or “Outbound” to another jurisdiction. We’ll help you navigate the complicated and ever-changing tax laws you face.
Our international tax advisory services include but are not limited to:
Let’s face it – tax compliance gives most people headaches. Compliance gets more complicated every year, and there are new rules, more forms and more pages than ever. It’s confusing and can seem non-sensical. The International Tax Nerds love this stuff – that’s why people like working with us. We prepare tax forms and also review returns prepared by other accounting and law firms. In addition to standard income tax returns and forms for US and non-US persons (e.g. forms 1040 and 1040-NR; 1120, 1120S and 1065) some of the items we handle include:
We’re proud of being International Tax Nerds. Let us make your life easier. Give us your headache!
There are clearly more questions than answers in many areas of cryptocurrency taxation, as the Jarrett case shows for staking. If an advisor has all the cryptocurrency tax answers, you should be wary. There are too many unknowns. We focus on the details of each transaction, as small changes may impact whether there’s current versus potential future income or whether there’s ordinary income versus capital gains.
Marc Schwartz, our International Tax Nerd In-Chief has spoken on cryptocurrency with the American Academy of Attorney-CPAs (of which he’s a proud member) and in Latin America for accounting and law firms in the region.
A sister company to Schwartz International, The Schwartz Law Firm provides a proactive approach in concert with our accounting services. There are two broad areas of focus:
Design and Implementation: Whether creating new corporate structures or restructuring existing ones, our team can implement the plan that meets your goals. We draft M&A agreements, create corporations, author royalty contracts, file paperwork with the proper authorities, and provide other legal work your global structure requires. For companies sending employees around the globe, we partner with your HR team to set up your secondment agreements and work with local HR and payroll companies to ensure reasonable expectations and compliance.
Tax Exposure: We also work with you on more sensitive matters such as tax exposure. Maybe you’re a US citizen or Green Card holder living outside the US who hasn’t filed a US tax return or foreign bank disclosure. Maybe you’ve filed but inaccurately. We help you come back into compliance and ensure you’re set to stay in compliance.
As appropriate, The Schwartz Law Firm will team with Schwartz International on programs like the Streamlined Domestic Offshore Procedures, Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedures, Delinquent International Information Return Submission Procedures and Delinquent FBAR Submission Procedures and more.
