I'm a digital nomad and doing my taxes as such for the first time, which is also my first time doing it as a freelancer. I moved out of the US in march of 2019, and since then have been back for 3 weeks in late november. I don't have residency in any country, just move around every 3 months or so in eastern europe.
I found a tax preparing service focused on expats/nomads that seems legit and was recommended to me by someone. I've never had to have someone prepare my taxes for me, and the price seems really steep to me. I made something like $35,000 in 2019, and for my federal taxes, state taxes, and an additional schedule C I require, the price is $740. Is this normal? I legitimately have very few to no deductions, so I don't think I'm going to be able to get a lot out of even a great tax service, especially since I didn't make much.
I get that expat tax services would cost a bit more than normal, so what is a good range to expect for good service? Anyone have anyone that they can recommend? The person I'm working with so far, just asking questions and getting stuff set up, seems really professional and helpful, but if I can find a better deal I would go for it. Thanks!
