It’s tax season and we want to make sure Apex Care Professionals have expert guidance on how to file and pay their taxes for 2019. The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 brought changes to the tax obligations of many J-1 Visa holders. The biggest change is that there is no longer a federal exemption for nonresident aliens meaning that every dollar earned by a nonresident alien is subject to federal income tax.
In order to give our Care Professionals resources to help navigate tax season, Apex PROaupair hired CPA Tim Johnson of JLK Rosenberger to provide basic tax advice and host a tax information webinar. Tim has over 20 years of broad public accounting experience specializing in working with professional athletes. This is the third year that Tim has hosted a webinar for Apex Care Professionals and we appreciate the wise tax advice he provides. Check out Tim’s LinkedIn profile.
This year’s Apex Proaupair sponsored webinar for Care Professionals was held on Wednesday, February 5th and you can watch it here.
In addition to the tax webinar, Apex PROaupair has arranged discounted access to Sprintax for our Care Professionals. Sprintax is an online service specializing in Federal and State tax preparation for nonresident aliens. Care Professionals can get a $10 discount by using the code: SpTx2019AUP301F10.
Apex PROaupair has also created tax resource pages for both host families and their care professionals. You can find basic tax information as a host family here and visit the au pair tax resource page by clicking here.
We wish a smooth tax season for all our program participants!
