I was referred to this company last year when my local agency advised me they no longer did US returns. It was handled remotely from a residence based office in Virginia. Don't be fooled by the slick web site; this appears to be a one person operation. I paid over $678 to have my US return completed and filed. It took weeks for Mary Beth Lougen to complete the return and I was subjected to frequent panicked, alarming phone calls from Ms. Lougen requesting obscure tax information. Moreover, she painstakingly completed by FBAR submission but not before warning me I could face a $100,000 fine from the IRS for non compliance. Contrast this miserable, expensive, frustrating experience to this spring. A local agency completed my US return for $80 and I breezed through the FBAR submission myself. Americanexpat is overpriced, its competency is questionable and its "staff" shrill and alarmist.
