Secure, simple tax preparation that lets you focus on what you do best.
Living abroad is complex enough. We’ll simplify the US expat tax part.
Greenback makes life better for Americans living abroad and aims to take away the anxiety and hassle of helping US expats become and stay compliant with their US taxes while overseas. Greenback understands that filing US taxes while living abroad can be daunting and Greenback was founded on the belief that it doesn’t have to be this way. Greenback is proud of helping people navigate a ridiculously complex system in a way that makes sense for their individual situation. While it may sound impossible, Greenback makes the process of filing US expat taxes a hassle-free one — a necessary step as part of an expat’s amazing adventure abroad.
What makes us unique?
Each of our accountants brings a wealth of proven professional experience to the team. We know that what our customers value most is having expat-expert accountants in charge of their US expat taxes, and we rise above the competition in that regard, hands down.
Currently we have clients in 212 countries and territories…and growing! We are proud of our extensive experience in providing US expat tax services to clients all over the world and look forward to working with you.
We’re Easy to Work With
We are able to make the process of filing taxes fast and easy by providing our customers with an online system for sharing documents. We don’t make our customers do all the financial calculations (as many firms do!) and we explain taxes in simple terms wherever humanly possible.
Our Data Security Standards
In sharing documents, we use the highest level of security available (256-bit encryption, which is what most banks use) to ensure that all documents remain confidential and secure.
Our Flat Fees
We make it easy for you to choose to work with us, as we don’t expect you to take on all the risk and confusion of a convoluted pricing structure. What you see is what you get: flat fees!
Learn the story behind Greenback
American expats and Greenback co-founders Carrie and David McKeegan found their expat tax needs overwhelming and expensive while living in the UK as professionals. While they both loved being American and living abroad, they were fed up with the process of filing US expat taxes. So, Carrie and David decided to build a service that could meet the needs of US expats — a tax preparation company whose accountants were at the forefront of expertise in US expat taxes, that was simple and easy to work with, and treated customers fairly and respectfully. And thus, in 2009, Greenback Expat Tax Services was born.
What We Do
Greenback offers straightforward pricing, a simple process and an expert team of CPAs and IRS Enrolled Agents who have extensive experience in the field of expat tax preparation. We provide accurate, efficient expat tax services for US citizens living abroad, all at flat fees.
We have years of experience completing US tax returns for Americans living abroad and have seen everything there is to see! For the average CPA, expat returns only account for 2% of his or her business. We focus 100% on expat returns. Put your return in the hands of experience — we promise you won’t be disappointed.
We know each person’s circumstances are unique, and we take the time to understand them. We believe in fair, transparent pricing. We don’t have any bait-and-hook pricing, i.e. quote one top-line fee and then charge another at the end of the process. We aim to make the process as easy as possible. For many of our customers, expat taxes had been a bit of a nightmare in the past. We like to think we make it all a little less painful!
We look to maximize your tax credit and refund opportunities, but we don’t put you at risk with the IRS to do so. We won’t take on business if the customer asks us to do something we aren’t comfortable doing. Period.
I was really impressed with how easy and painless this process was. I needed to catch up on a few year’s of tax returns, and my accountant was more than helpful. She did a thorough job answering my questions and filling out my return, and I was pleased with the quick turnaround time. I’ll definitely be using this service next year!

The process is easy and they help you through it right up to paying your taxes. This is important if you don’t have a bank account in the USA. They are completely trustworthy and look after your best interest.

I am an entrepreneur and my main focus is making my business the best it can be. I had fallen behind on my US taxes and that’s when I engaged Greenback. The process was simple and smooth – I uploaded my tax records, the questionnaire and then my accountant prepared and filed my returns. Now I can stay focused on my business knowing that Greenback will take care of my US taxes!

3rd year customer and impressed with the constant check up by customer support. The whole team understands what’s like to live and work overseas, their price remains pretty competitive and I will come back next year.
