That would be something we trust our partners with, we do provide all the numbers and help with support and communication. For our accrual and accrual priority clients we are happy to join a call or two each year for no charge with your CPA.
Our partner for straight forward income tax filing (federal and state) is www.taxfyle.com and in terms of the best value for a relatively low cost they are the best around.
For USA resident clients who want exceptionally high levels of service and communication then we work with our favourite USA based CPA Meg, here is some more info around her tax services (https://meg.mykajabi.com/2021-done-for-you-tax-prep)
For non US resident aliens, that is entrepreneurs who do not live in the USA but possibly trade in the USA trough an LLC we only use www.gwcarter.com as they are real experts in this area. Richard uses Gary and his team personally so a very high level of trust!
For our customers in the United Kingdom we have two fellow ecom specialist accounting firms for all UK based income tax and if needed company filing services being our friends at www.elverecommerceaccountants.co.uk and www.ecommerceaccountants.co.uk … they are also pretty good at EU tax but we have some less formal relationships with firms in Germany and the rest of the EU as well.
Tax returns in the USA for a sole proprietor or a simple single member LLC could be as low as $300 with TaxFyle, but with a dedicated high service level CPA this could be as much as $1,200 per year.
If you are filing a multi member LLC, an LLC elected to be taxed as an S-Corp or a C-Corp this tax return will be more expensive.
For non US residents expect this number to be higher and remember you may need to get an ITIN for you personally in addition to any EIN number you have for your LLC. Non US residents have additional reporting requirements (Form 5472 and 1120 non submission can be $25,000 fine! – link https://gwcarter.com/us-tax-guide-for-nonresident-aliens-with-single-member-llc/ ) and of course Gary and team will need to analyse if your trading in the USA is connected income arising from a permanent establishment and therefore subject to US Federal income taxes – yes you read that right you may be liable for income taxes in the USA. Of course, this is also analysed in context of any double tax agreements. Lastly for non US residents you will still need to look at how you are taxed back home. We help guide you on this but you will need your local tax advisor’s services in your home contry.
