Tax Preparation - US, Canada and International - A Division of  Joseph C Smith Tax Consultants


Our specialty practice includes mobile professionals in healthcare, IT, engineering, nuclear, Canadian, international, foreign missionaries, and similar situations. With over 18 years experience, starting with travel nurse taxes, we understand the needs of the traveling "contingent" professional working in multiple tax jurisdictions. We represent clients before IRS, Canadian Revenue Agency, and state tax agencies in audits and controversy resolutions, and are available year round for advice and assistance.

We defend any audited return we prepare and pay penalties and interest if the error is ours.  (subject to terms)

We do over 300 extensions a year, so you are not alone. We take the 16th off, and then dive right back in. We keep the returns in queue, so the quicker you send in all of your information, the sooner you get done. So keep sending your "stuff" in! - - - REMEMBER JOE'S MANTRA: RIGHT AND LATE IS BETTER THAN IN A RUSH AND WRONG. IT IS A SLOPPY RETURN THAT CAUSES AN AUDIT, NOT A LATE ONE.


If you have already had your returns completed and e-filed, you can check the status of your federal refund on the IRS website.

The Travelers Conference is organized and operated by fellow travelers who understand the needs of other travelers. As a non-profit, it has no affiliation with any travel nurse company in order to maintain complete independence.
TravelTax is there every year, teaching about tax issues as they pertain to travelers. It is fun for us to get to actually meet some of our clients! Click the logo for their site.
