Every year, I dread tax season, but this year I actually ENJOYED doing my taxes! I felt in good hands from the moment I had my initial 15-minute consult. For the first time, I genuinely felt in good hands with the right tax expert for my situation. I love the online portal that makes it so easy to add important docs, the communication and expectations were clear and well communicated, reminder emails are automatic and helpful...I'm 100% satisfied, will be using Greenback next year and highly recommend their services.

My tax advisor just became my personal hero. American expat friend, no matter where you live: if you are ever in need of assistance with your ever-so-complicated tax returns or FBARs, please contact Greenback! I can recommend them without reservation. My angel of a tax advisor went to great lengths and was absolutely reliable, professional, and congenial throughout. I will forever be grateful for his competent advice that finally got me back on track with American taxes.

Greenback made a complex process straightforward. I have just moved to the US from the UK and, with salaries from two jobs in two countries with different tax years, as well as rental income, I would have been lost without Greenback. They made my life easier, provided value for money and the accountant with whom I worked was helpful and happy to answer all my questions. I'll be using Greenback for my taxes next year and for many years.

I have had the folks at Greenback do my taxes for about 10 years now and have always been satisfied with the process, service, pricing, and, importantly, the results! I am one that appreciates having the same accountant do my returns over the years. This continuity is just one of the "soft" or "hard to measure" metrics in why I appreciate this service! I can highly recommend them with confidence!

Greenback is the perfect niche business. They do what they do extremely well. They are professional, responsive, and resourceful. Working with them takes the dread and tedium from that uniquely American original sin of having to pay taxes on worldwide income while living abroad. I cannot imagine facing this yearly slog without Greenback! My accountant, whom I have never met, of course, is one of my favorite people.
