Expatriate Tax Services

Specialized Assistance to Enable a Global Workforce

At KBF we believe in subject matter specialization and technical expertise. That’s why we created a group solely focused on individual international taxation and positioned our accounting firm differently than larger firms in the industry. At KBF we focus on providing the highest level of technical experience and customer service. For our clients, that means more personalized services from more experienced professionals, and at lower rates.
