If knowledge is power, NZUS Tax Specialists is your tax company. I have engaged them for several years now and it is rare to come across a standout, organized company like them.

Gina and her team help you work through complex financial information in a logical sequence.

They are reasonably priced, friendly, engaging, ridiculously efficient and their communication is fast and effortless.

Having moved to New Zealand from the US in 1998, I would file my own taxes every year until one day in 2015, I heard from the IRS. They said I had miscalculated and owed them more tax. This happened again the following year, and all of a sudden US taxes started to become a source of anxiety and stress in my life. After several unsuccessful attempts to contact the IRS in order to understand what the issues were, I decided to engage NZ US Tax Specialists.

A meeting was set up promptly with Gina and Both my husband and I quickly felt like we would be in the safe hands of experts. They were on time, professional, and very transparent around their charges. We were so pleased with how they handled my US taxes, that we have asked them to do our NZ taxes also. Overall, I would say that NZ US Tax Specialists have taken our tax headaches away. We completely trust that they have it all under control and it feels like a weight has been lifted. I would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone looking for peace of mind around their US and NZ taxes.

Q&A with our tax experts


Q: We purchased our home in New Zealand and have just sold it and repaid our mortgage. With respect to the repayment of the mortgage are there any US tax implications we need to be concerned about? 

A: No. Whilst certain foreign currency-denominated debt instruments are subject to Internal Revenue Code provisions requiring foreign currency gain and/or losses to be recognized as ordinary income, the disposition of a foreign financial instrument by an individual, provided the instrument was acquired for personal use, will not give rise to recognizable foreign currency gain or loss on disposition.
