I have considered using a similar UK/US tax professional over here in the US, do you know if it’s cheaper to use a British based expert as opposed to a US expert seeing as how filing taxes will be an ongoing thing?

I have never used a US based tax preparer so don't know I'm afraid.

Some of the below have been recommended by other posters. Some are inexpensive (less than $400), some are expensive ($1,000+).

You are more than welcome. I have learned so much from this site that I like to give back when I can.

Hi durham_lad, after you left the US how did you deal with any mail that you received once you had left the country? Did you contact the US postal service & inform them? Most correspondence my wife & I receive is generally junk or from charities but I would hate to miss the letter informing me an eccentric family member has left us a large inheritance.

I went into the Post Office and set up international forwarding for 6 months.

We had retired 6 years earlier and left town for 6 months every year so I had gone paperless with everything I could prior to retirement and refined it over the years.

I can’t remember the details except that I had to physically go into a post office. More info below

https://faq.usps.com/s/article/Chang...ess-The-Basics

File Change of Address at the Post Office
  • International addresses (moving TO an international address) are eligible by using the Mover’s Guide only; International COA cannot be completed online
  • Pick up a Mover’s Guide at your local Post Office and follow all instructions
