I am a German citizen but have lived abroad all my life. I want to move to Germany. How can I set an account from the country I am living in so that when I sell my house here, I can deposit that amount in Germany?

Hi Bryan, I am a 31-yr old US citizen who lived in Germany for 6 yrs and now works in the US where I plan to retire later on. I contributed to the German Pension Fund for 60 months and will have 30 yrs of substantial earnings in the US by retirement. Therefore, it appears I qualify for benefits in both countries. How will I be taxed? Do I file a tax return in Germany for the German payments, or am I taxed for both benefits in the US? Thank you very much in advance for your help!

Hi Bryan - I am an American citizen living in Germany. I have an IRA in the US. I am now working in Germany and intend to stay. At retirement will I be able to cash out my IRA and only pay US taxes or will Germany taxes also apply. Also, if I fund a retirement account her in Germany, will US taxes apply?
Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi David,
I am a U.S. citizen and a permanent resident of Canada. My main residence is Vancouver BC. I own an S-corp. located in San Francisco and spend about 1/3 of my time in SF. All my income is in USD coming from that business. No Candadian income. I am currently the only employee and sole owner of the business. I am interested in opening a SEP IRA to maximize savings but want to know if there are complications with the IRS that I should be aware of. Thank you.

My family and I are thinking of relocating to Germany. Our credit history is not the greatest here in the US. Will that matter if we move to Germany?

I'm a IT Consultant and I have my Company in Brazil and my contract is between my Company and a Swiss Consulting, and this Swiss Consulting has a Contract with the Germany Company. I receive my income in Brazil (by invoice) and in this case do I need to pay some tax or Income tax here in Germany?
