Such an Amazing show!!!
Really good podcast. Unfortunately it's been awhile since a new episode has come out. I have listened to many tax podcasts and this is the first on that explains things in a way I can understand. Hopefully they start coming out again.
Incredible resource. This podcast is the absolute 80/20 for American expats and tax. Stewart lays it all out there in a super straight-forward, honest and admirable way. Don’t be a bozo - subscribe!
Good background, I will probably still take a course or hire out but now I know a good background.
