For years I've had the good fortune to travel and to live abroad. I have been able to see many countries and many cultures, and the common thread through every adventure abroad is I wanted to do more - to see more. I've been fortunate in business, and have been honored many times by my peers with awards and commendations. Bright!Tax is the meeting point and culmination of my two greatest passions - exceeding our clients' expectations and experiencing the wider world.

“Bright!Tax erases the stress of doing taxes. They handled my complex situation, including four streams of income, with ease. Along the way, I so appreciated their clear communication. I always knew what was next and exactly what to expect. What a relief to have found this top tier support. It saves me time, and allows me to breathe easy knowing experts are taking care of it.”
“Everything was completed in a very friendly but professional manner, well within the time frame given! I’m so glad I switched to this company – they really understand my expat situation!”
“Extremely helpful in assisting me navigating through my taxes. Much easier than I ever thought it would be to do from abroad, and for much less than I thought it would cost. They are quick to answer any questions I come up with. Will continue to use Bright!Tax every year because they make it so easy!
“I really like that I am a name and not a number. Bright!Tax makes you feel as if you are the number one client, the only client. I am not a book keeping superhero, and the team is always good at giving me a little nudge when I am falling behind. I could not recommend Bright!Tax enough. Thank You!”
“The team that worked on our taxes was very helpful and understanding of everything we needed to do to get our taxes filed. Filing taxes when working overseas is overwhelming, but Bright!Tax makes the process much more bearable. I think as much anyone possibly can. Thank you so much!
“From our first initial consultation we could see that the team we would be working with were the ultimate professionals and experts. They made the process easy to understand and worked efficiently and quickly to help sort out my US taxes while I was living abroad. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone and will definitely work with them again in the future!”
“Your team is very responsive, quick and your communications are clear. Whenever I have a question someone responds very quickly. And you are all very polite, reassuring and clearly very competent. I’ve developed a lot of faith in your company and will definitely be sticking with you and always recommend you when there is an occasion.”
“Taxes are finally done and I just need to send them off. Bright!Tax answered my questions quickly. Sent me everything that I had to do to submit my taxes via email. The best thing was actually talking to actual people when I had any questions.”
“Excellent and immediate communication throughout the entire process. The whole team is always available and quick to respond. I’ve been working with Bright!Tax for five years and have had a 5-star experience every time. Highly recommend.”
