Hi,At least in Paris, there are a number of firms that will prepare your US return and your French declaration. You can find adverts at AngloInfo. This costs around €1000 a year.
That may be true, but that is not what I said €1000 might cover. I said it would cover, approximately, both US & French paperwork. And this is only approximate as it depends on how complicated your financial life is. In my experience, somewhat less than this covers my situation, which I would call somewhere above average in complication.Hi,
If you are confident with preparing your US tax declaration, 1000€ is an exorbitant amount to pay for the average french declaration, for which you can get free advice here.
I'm not sure I agree with that. I would rather go to the horse's mouth - for free - than pay for "non-official" advice.Moreover, if there is a significant amount of money at stake, paying for an experienced, independent view on how to handle your French tax liability, rather than relying on a fonctionnaire, could be money well spent.
