Death, taxes and childbirth! There's never any convenient time for any of them.
Margaret Mitchell
At tax time, it helps to remember that if your tax obligation has increased from the previous year, it's usually because you're enjoying more income. That's a situation to which most of us aspire. Higher taxes are a price that we pay for greater success.
Richard Carlson


Why am I pursuing an American tax return practice? Like many people, my career has not followed a straight path. Yet, this is where I have ended up. I attended primary school at the American International School in Kuwait, which taught me to speak, read, and write in English. Once I returned to the Netherlands, I gained more than 20 years of experience in various account functions in the design world. After my family moved to Germany, I joined the American International Women's Club, where I served two terms as Vice President. Due to the bylaws governing the AIWC, a higher position was not allowed; only Americans could hold those offices.  

When we left Germany and returned to the Netherlands, I started working at Rubes US Tax Services. Initially, I gathered and sorted the tax information, but soon I started preparing the returns myself. I passed the exam for becoming an Enrolled Agent in one sitting, which also allows me to represent clients to the IRS. 

After six pleasant years as an employee, I decided to set out on my own. As of June 1, 2023, Karin Klaassen US Tax Consult has been in business.
