Professor, Florida State University-Panama
"I have lived outside of the US since I was 22. Around ten
years ago, I began to hear horror stories of people my age, in their fifties,
who had been born in the US but had lived outside of the country for years
owing crippling back taxes; this is when I was made to understand that even
though I had been earning and paying taxes in Canada since 1993, I was required
to file my US taxes, something I was unaware of up to that point.
Then, I discovered Mr. Clinton Donnelly here in Panama where
I currently reside and work. Mr. Donnelly explained clearly that we needed to
investigate whether I owed taxes and then file. He took charge of my case,
looking through years of documentation and communication, and after contacting
the IRS, pronounced that I was free and clear of any tax debt to the US
government in the space of about a month—this after thirty years of trying to
get it resolved!
The next step, Mr. Donnelly explained, was to file my US
taxes back three years. Because I am technologically and paperwork challenged,
I have never attempted to file taxes on my own. I have always been more than
happy to pay for the service; I had just had trouble finding a US tax advisor
outside of the US.
Mr. Donnelly took charge. He provided me with a list of
documentation I needed to gather and proceeded to fill out all of the forms for
me, presenting them only for signature. Each of the three years of back filing
represents a 26 + page packet of documents, all handled entirely by Mr.
Without any hesitation, I recommend that anyone with a US
tax issue and who is “technologically and paperwork challenged” contact Mr.
Donnelly. I will definitely use his expertise to file my US taxes annually from
this point forth. His patient, kind and understanding help has been invaluable
to me and relieved me of a great deal of stress. Thank you, Mr. Donnelly."
