I found FIRPTA Solutions by accident, I had sold a condo and the FIRPTA payment should never have been paid over to the IRS but mistakes happened and it was. I was now in the position of having to file a US tax return to reclaim it.
In the UK that would not have been a problem for me, but, the more I looked at the forms that had to be completed the more worried I got and so many websites warned of the consequences of filing the wrong information. As soon as I contacted FIRPTA Solutions I felt a great weight had been lifted, they handled everything professionally and competently – but most importantly with a touch of humour. So much money is at stake and a smile is so needed when you are afraid you may not get it returned.
The whole process took only two weeks, yes we did have all the information to hand, but we felt we were so fortunate when the refund came through much more quickly than expected.
Once again to Julie, Megan and their team – A big thank you, I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who needs assistance in this area.
