  • I worked abroad two times. Definitely one of the most difficult thing is returning the taxes.  First time I were not satisfied with the company I used, therefore I could recommend RT TAX for quick and reliable company. I’m planning to go to the USA again and after that I’m sure I will use RT TAX service again.
