Recommend an accountant in DFW area?
 
Hi there

Can anyone recommend an accountant in the DFW area familiar with UK and US tax and accounting practices?

Thanks
John

I think finding one in the US will be your challenge, expecting such a beast to be in a specific area may be asking a lot.

Peter Newton, based in NY, gets recommended a lot by folks on BE.

Should be a good starting point, with most of the taxes being on the Federal level and I didn't think there was a income tax in Texas, so that should simplify things, perhaps.

I agree with the responses you've had. Don't confine yourself to DFW if you want UK/US knowledge and experience.

Either learn your rights and responsibilities yourself and then work with a good general accountant, or go with one of the recommended expat experts, regardless of location in the US.

I took the former route, but it wasn't any fun. I'd advise the latter :)

Mr H the S and I are using Pete Newton this year. It was too difficult for us this time around and with the Green Card applications in we cannot afford to get it wrong. :)

+1 to going with an expat specialist. You can send everything you need to them anyway by email/post so having someone that knows how to deal with expat requirements is better than someone local IMO.

I recommend Pete Newton as well. I've been using him the past few years.

Another +1 for Pete. You can just drop him an email with a question and he'll reply within a day or two, usually really quickly.
