U.S. Taxes for Worldly Americans


U.S. Taxes for Worldly Americans: The Traveling Expat’s Guide to Living, Working, and Staying Tax Compliant Abroad by Olivier Wagner is an informative book that gives tax advice (and life advice) for individuals living abroad. Though taxes can sometimes seem dry, it is entertaining read. Wagner discusses specific tax concerns in detail; one of my favorite sections was when he talked about tax credits. I also like how the book delves into issues related to living abroad that go beyond taxes, such as family dynamics abroad, the restrictions of internet access in certain countries, and mail forwarding.

Wagner’s book is a good guide for those planning on living abroad, but it also serves as an interesting and educational book in general. It not only made me think about some of the issues that ex-pats and dual citizens face when living away from America, but it gave me a glimpse into the lives of world travelers.
