I teamed up with Amy from Aussies in SF Bay and together we sat and spoke to Jason Stoch from UpTrend Advisory to answer the top questions about U.S. Taxes for expats.

“The tax webinar was so helpful! US taxes can be really stressful, so having a Jason as trusted source of information helped clear up a lot of questions I had. Not only did Amy, Josh and Jason go through really common questions on topics like filing status, superannuation/401k and foreign assets, but they also highlighted some of the mistakes that Aussies in the US make when filing their taxes. Super valuable!” – Kaity

US Taxes for Expats & Australians

Hello and welcome everyone to a us taxes and ex pet you a potential love story. Thank you very much for joining. My name is Josh from New York, originally from Adelaide, and I’m the Josh behind AmericaJosh.com. You’ve probably also seen me commenting all the time on posts on Australians in New York and Australians in America.

America Josh is a website and community to help expats moved to the United States from all over the world. We have useful tips, tricks, and advice, and I run about everything from how to order a sandwich in a New York bodega to tax advice. And that’s how I’ve gotten myself into this webinar. We put this webinar together because just like you, we moved to the US from Australia and amongst everything else, we had to sort in our lives.

We had tax to consider.

And as someone who has absolutely no idea what would what I’m doing at tax time. Uh, I was someone who could have benefited from something like this three years ago when I arrived, the group of us have also spoken to hundreds of Australian ex-pats and had similar questions and we thought that bringing in a professional go out for them was the best way forward.

Sorry. Here’s how it’s going to work. In the next hour, we’ll be going to a range of topics that you’ve all asked about. We had over 150 questions submitted, and we’ve divided them into a number of categories, ranging from a really broad overview of tax requirements to questions of tax residency, 401k, superannuation, FBAR, foreign assets, and more.

We’ve worked hard to try and answer as many of your questions as possible with general advice, and it’s applicable to everyone. Amy and I will take it in turns asking questions without resident pro who will take it from there and we’ll finish everything up within the hour.

So can I introduce Amy Meyer who will introduce Jason and kick us off!

About the Author

America Josh

I had a fantastic life in Adelaide and in Australia but thought in late 2015 that it was time to do something new. I handed over control of my company, sold my house, car, and even gave away my cat (“Aslan”) to start on my journey to New York.

I arrived in New York on January 10, 2017, from Adelaide, South Australia and in March 2017, I started America Josh to help make the transition to the US from wherever you’re from just a little bit easier.
