Golding & Golding - International Business Tax Lawyers

Golding & Golding – U.S. and International Tax Lawyers

When it comes to working and living overseas, one the main classifications of U.S. expats are U.S. Government Contractors. Government contractors generally work for a company such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing or any one of the various other companies that have contracts with the United States government.

On the one hand, these individuals are not considered government workers and therefore do not enjoy all the benefits of being a US government employee overseas. Conversely, there are various benefits that an expat government contractor may qualify for that a US government employee who works overseas would not qualify for such as the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion (FEIE).

We work with a broad range of different contractors and contractor companies worldwide in order to evaluate tax equalization, determine IRS and DOT reporting requirements (FATCA, FBAR, 8938, etc.) and develop individual tax strategies to legally reduce US tax liability.
