Our director, Barron Harper, is foremost an International Tax Preparer who works with American Expatriates. This work requires a comprehensive understanding of how the Internal Revenue Service both taxes and treats American citizens residing abroad. In recent years, the Service has stepped up its filing requirements with new stricter penalties being applied to citizens who do not comply with IRS filing requirements. Americans living abroad who are unaware that they should be filing an annual return are exposing themselves unnecessarily to being caught and penalized.
Having prepared tax returns for 22 years and for Expatriates for more 15 years, Barron is considered to be experienced, competent and reliable in this highly complex area of International Taxation. He is a graduate of North Texas State University (University of North Texas) from where he earned his MS in Accounting in 1985, specializing in U.S. Taxation. During and after his education, he worked in public accounting in Dallas, Texas, and in Santa Fe, New Mexico, before arriving in Europe in 1992.
He has also worked as an International Accountant, a Professor of Accounting, and part time in the pursuit of Scholarship. As an Accountant, he has served business communities in Texas, New Mexico, Spain and Portugal. In his Professorial role, he has taught Accounting disciplines at European University. Finally he researches and writes on current issues and historical issues for publication.
In recent years, he has been awarded the International Quality Crown Award (2003) and membership in the prestigious Who's Who Historical Society (2002-03). He was also inducted into the 2003 Edition of the International WHO'S WHO of Professionals. He has also received Certificates of Appreciation for Income and Estate Tax presentations in Spain and Portugal.
He is past Treasurer for and current Vice President of the Alliance of American Organizations in Iberia (ALLAMO).
