Having grown up in Brooklyn, New York with five siblings, David didn’t catch the travel bug until his second trip out of the United States as part of an exchange program in Belgium. Since then, David has lived all over the world. It was while he lived in London that the idea for Greenback Expat Tax Services came to be.

Greenback offers straightforward pricing, a simple, hassle-free process and CPAs and EAs who have extensive experience in the field of expat tax preparation.
Owning a property in the U.S. while living abroad may be the perfect choice for Americans who may want to return to the U.S. someday. You may want to gain additional income through renting, maintain your existing home or maybe you're underwater on a mortgage and decide its better to hold onto the property until prices come back.
Buying property in the U.S. may seem easier than in many other countries. The real estate markets are open and there is generally no ban on foreign investment in property (personal or corporate). But beware - U.S. real estate markets can be complicated.
