Tax season approaches! Long-term travelers, how do you handle taxes?

Taxes aren't very fun to talk about, but many globetrotters need advice on it! Lots of travelers work online or grab odd jobs in each country they visit, while maintaining residency/citizenship in a different country. 

This obviously gets tricky when it comes to tax time. 

How do you handle filing taxes? Do you do it yourself using software? Do you have a recommended accountant who specializes in freelancers and nomads?

    Your nomadic work schedule sounds great!

    As a heads-up, one risk of working in multiple countries is being double-taxed or (even worse) being audited and unable to prove where you earned your income. Make sure that whatever solution you choose, you keep records - receipts, copies of plane tickets, pay stubs - that can show where you spent your time and earned income. My company, Monaeo, also has a mobile app for iOS or Android that can help you automatically log which tax jurisdiction (state or country) you spend each day in.

    We've partnered with a few accountants who handle clients who travel and work globally:

    Barry Weisman (Anchin, Block, Anchin) - barry.weisman@anchin.com
    Corey Rosenthal - crosenthal@JHCohn.com

    Hope this helps!
