Advice/referral: expate tax preparation

Post by myself11 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:48 am

Hello,
i work outside the country and I would like a referral re: tax preparation for 2017. I had a local company here prepare my taxes past 3 years and they charged an arm and a leg for that. My tax situation is rather straightforward. I may have to work with the person remotely and forward things via email .Thanks.

KPMG prepared both our German and US returns as well as returns for CA and AZ. The company paid for it and I'm sure they are not cheap.

Question re: Backdoor Roth

Post by myself11 » Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:48 pm

If my wife and I make together above 200K and we have through our employers 401Ks, and we have been putting aside in traditional IRAs, 5500$/person/year, can we convert the money [part or all] currently in traditional accounts, into Backdoor ROTHs, and if so do we pay taxes on conversion or it is already taxes? Thanks a lot as usual.
