We’re excited to announce our next webinar, which brings back two of Taxlinked’s favorite panelists to break down US foreign tax credits for all of us.

Generally speaking, there are a series of foreign tax credits that US citizens living abroad can benefit from when filing their US taxes.

During this webinar, our panelists will guide us on the ins and outs of the US foreign tax credit system, offering us with a solid introduction to this topic and touching upon this issue from both a practitioner’s and taxpayer’s perspective.

The event will take place on Thursday, August 22nd at 12:00 pm London BST, so make sure you register below.
