What Our Clients Have To Say About Us

Our Clients Say


Foreign Seller

Although we had purchased our property in Newport, RI in 2012 completely unaware of the potential tax implications for non-US Resident property owners, upon signing our P & S agreement 5 years later, we were soon to find out all about it! It is quite overwhelming knowing which forms are required by the IRS, what order they must be filed in and by which date. We made online searches and the information seemed even more complex. Enter FIRPTA Solutions – in particular Megan Johnson and Julie Lepore – and our worries melted away overnight. FIRPTA offers a highly professional service and within 2 weeks we were ready to file. Of course we had tons of questions and what was especially nice was the fast and friendly response from the team. Thank you Megan and Julie! I shall definitely recommend you to any of my British friends in the US in similar situation.

Job well done and not your garden variety degree of task.



Samantha and Firpta Solutions went above and beyond my expectations. As a Canadian seller Samantha made what seemed like a difficult process very easy for me. I would definitely recommend Firpta Solutions, with a special thanks to Samantha.

Congratulations Vanna!!!!! Great Job!! You are amazing. Thanks so much for all your hard work. I’m glad to select you and your company to handle my client’s transaction. Thanks to you the transaction was a complete success!!! I looking to work with you again in future transactions, for sure!



For me as a foreigner from Germany it was great to have such a professional support on my side. Yuri Perez help in my native language made it extremely easy to understand all requests.

I want to thank Megan and the team at FIRPTA Solutions for helping me with the sale of my property in the U.S. I live abroad and needed assistance navigating through the bureaucratic processes involved in selling my American property. Megan and her team were extremely professional. They took the time to listen to my concerns and they communicated with me promptly at all times throughout the process. Megan and her team answered my questions and helped me to sell my property in an expedited manner. Their excellent work provided me with peace of mind. I highly recommend Megan Johnson and FIRPTA Solutions!

B. Norwich - UK

Foreign Seller

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.

We simply cannot speak highly enough of the job done by FIRPTA Solutions. They have proven themselves to be very efficient, very knowledgeable and always accessible. We have found their customer service to be exceptional, at a time when most companies are seriously lacking in it. There is considerable uncertainty and confusion involved with selling property in the U.S. when you are not a U.S. citizen. We were fortunate in being put in touch with FIRPTA Solutions, for they did the majority of the work and guided us every step of the way. We highly recommend them and cannot thank them enough.

I want to express my thanks to Julie Lepore for all of her help in the sale of my Cape Coral condo. Without her expert advice I would have been lost. Thanks again Julie and I received my rebate on Friday.

Laurie Schmidt


As non American citizens we are not familiar with American tax laws, so it is very comforting to have such a qualified company handle this for us, very friendly and knowledgeable staff made our experience very easy.

Megan and Yuri have done a fantastic job for me in getting all the FIRPTA documentation prepared for the sale of my ''foreign owned home''. This process can be confusing and complicated but Yuri and Megan were very knowledgeable, and explained everything that I needed to know. Thank you again guys.


Samantha is awesome!! I had a case which needed urgent help. After talking to Samantha for five minutes, she agreed to roll up her sleeves and rushed it for me, and she did everything perfectly!! I have been working with FIRPTA solutions for three times and they never let me down. The team is professional and Samantha is super pleasant to communicate with. Thank you so much Samantha for your help!!

FIRPTA Solutions is my way to go for foreigner transaction files and Title Company errors. They helped me with 2 client files that had improper withholding on a multi member LLC. The service was fast and very effective. I am thankful for professionals who share the same services or similar services we can count on and do not have to worry about losing our clients, it's the opposite, with their help and expertise I was able to turn these temp clients into monthly clients. Thank you Julie and FIRPTA Solutions, you guys are the best!

G. Sawchuk - Stoney Creek, Ont

Foreign Seller

I am writing to express my satisfaction with FIRPTA Solutions and their assistance in completing my taxes. As a Canadian -snowbird- I was unsure what to do and confused with the process of obtaining my tax ID number from the IRS and the complexities of calculating and completing my final capital gains return on the sale of my condo in Ft. Myers. Julie was very professional and impressive with her knowledge and experience in this area and did a great job. I was completely satisfied with her fees and costs. It is reassuring to deal with this company and to be confident that Julie did a very thorough job completing our taxes. I would recommend FIRPTA Solutions and Julie Lepore to any snowbird to help with these complex details.

We would like to thank FIRPTA and Nicole for guiding us through the process of applying for an ITIN required for the sale of land we owned in Florida. She was patient in walking us through the process and was able to address all of our concerns as we completed the application. Thanks FIRPTA and Nicole.


Email Review

Megan Johnson has been a fantastic FIRPTA expert. She helped us solve our issues once we’ve sold our property in Estero Fl. Always available by email and WhatsApp. Being Italian citizens WhatsApp phone calls were precious for quick exchanges free of charge.

A huge thank you to FIRPTA Solutions, particularly Megan Johnson who provided a phenomenal amount of help. My partner and I are non-US residents and navigating IRS forms would have been a bureaucratic nightmare. Megan worked exceptionally hard to complete all required paperwork and have the IRS refund withholding tax for us. Thank you so much!

Julie was simply wonderful. Informative, reassuring and always there to answer questions. Second time using this company and can't recommend it enough!

John and Marie-Noele MacCarthy


We wish to thank the team at Firpta Solutions for the excellent work they have done for us in filing all documents with the IRS for our ITIN, witholding certificate request and related tax forms. It was very convenient for us since FIRPTA Solutions is a certified acceptance office they were able to certify the validity of our foreign passports as part of the process. They are a highly experienced, professional team and we were so glad to find this service. Thank you so much for explaining the whole process to us and for the timely manner in which you handled all our queries. We are glad to recommend the services of FIRPTA solutions.

Julie & Patti were Great to deal with, knowledgeable, Understanding straight forward. I would strongly recommend this company. Good Work Ladies!

Patti is professional and honest. Easy to communicate and available at any time. Hoping will get from the IRS our amount.

Gerda Horvath


Thanks again for the helping hands you gave us to get our taxes back! Espacially Holly, she is such a sweet lady and explained everything in the way to let us understand how it works in the United states, as Europe is very different in those cases. There was no question she wouldn`t answer immediately! We would always come back to your company!!



Megan, Samantha and the rest of their team are competent and professional. As a Spanish client, I have valued their telematic tools that reduce the need to travel or send documentation.

Florida British ex pat

These guys know their stuff! From the original consultation (money well spent)to the process. FIRPTA Solutions were excellent. The tax Manager who handled our case was very efficient and liaised with the closing company to enable the tax forms being submitted correctly and on time.



You have really exceeded my expectations, your company helped me with my first deal just 2 days before closing even without knowing any info about my property. Fast and effectively and i got my refund quick.



Today is our "closing" and Mrs. Yury has been taking care of all the details diligently and in very organized way. I hope all will be well also for the next steps.

It has been a real pleasure doing business with you. We are very satisfied with the services you rendered to us. Many times you have gone out of your way to ensure that we understood the gibberish of accounting. You have been very professional Julie and we thank you for that. Take care of yourself.

I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided to us in dealing with our Cape Coral property sale. As out-of-country non-residents, we were not aware of the complexities involved in selling U.S. properties and you were able to defuse the anxiety we were experiencing with your friendly and professional advice and superior service.

Megan really helped me out of a jam with the IRS. I screwed up a form that was to be filed, post closing on some land. For a very reasonable fee, she called her contact and straightened everything out. She saved me around $2000!! I will only use you and I will recommend you to my friends and family.

Jeffrey Schmalz


Overall, I was very pleased with the effort I received from FIRPTA SOLUTIONS. Samantha was always there, answered all of my questions honestly and quickly. This is not a simple process and involves a lot of money, which means there was stress on our end. She was always very calm and exceptionally well briefed on all issues. She went out of her way to make sure that we were completely satisfied. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.

Ronald Berard


Julie, Yuri and the Team did a fantastic job. Being a Canadian and unable to be in FLA due to Covid-19, I was hesitant on how this process would work out. I was very impressed with the staff's professionalism, communication skill and the ability to work diligently with my title company. Highly recommended. Thank You!

Mauri and Ritva Vilponen


As Finns who owned a Florida vacation home, we found facing complex problems with tax issues when it came time to sell. Our good realtor, Gene Lofgren, recommended that we use professional help by giving us a website of the FIRPTA Solution. We contacted FIRPTA Solutions and were immediately guided through our options by Samatha Callins and Yuri Perez. We had no idea what needed to be done and they handled everything. They prepared for us both the Withholding Certificate and the ITIN number applications for the IRS and handled all related communications to the IRS, Title Manager, and Buyer. They were very knowledgeable, friendly, and quick in their service work. Thank you so much! We can recommend them very warmly.

Holly and Meghan were simply on top of all aspects of the not so friendly FIRPTA process. They informed us of all steps and options from the beginning, they were extremely responsive to all our requests and communications, and true gems to deal with. No doubt whatsoever, you will not enjoy FIRPTA, but you will be delighted by the service rendered by FIRPTA Solutions.



Special thanks for the outstanding support and professional service provided by Yuri Perez.

I had no previous knowledge of the steps necessary to complete a land transaction living in another country. My first point of contact was Megan Johnson and was very professional and helpful through the entire process. Megan also made herself available even after her company hours. Very much appreciated and highly recommended. Thanks Adam Dow

Gisela F. - BC Canada

Foreign Seller

Just wanted to take a moment to say how very much I appreciated the help and assistance I received from Megan Johnson, a member of your team. We are Canadians and live in Canada and also have a vacation home in Arizona. We are in the process of selling our home in Arizona and I was almost going crazy trying to figure out how to get our ITIN. I had tried on my own and sent in the application in which I thought I had everything covered. Well 2 months later that came back and was denied because it was incomplete. As a senior and not familiar with all the wording in these applications, I was at a loss as to figuring out how to fill them out. The Escrow Company just said that they would not assist in filling out the ITIN Application and that I needed to have an ITIN before the close of the sale. Three times I called and spoke to the IRS who couldn’t help me either. They told me to hire someone who was familiar with these kinds of applications.

Megan Johnson is a very qualified and thinking ahead lady. She is a very friendly and professional with a big knowledge about tax. She has a perfect German speaking assistant. Megan works reliable and fast. We are very satisfied and can highly recommend her.

Mel Horowitz


Selling a home is stressful. Selling our Florida home from a Covid lockdown in Canada, and not able to communicate with anyone in person is doubly stressful. Samantha and Yuri were understanding, pleasant and most efficient dealing with FIRPTA matters.With numerous phone calls & e-mails they were able to file the necessary documents with the IRS. If only they would be as efficient! I would highly recommend FIRPTA Solutions to anyone having to venture the unknown through the massive US regulations. Thank You Ladies!

I have been thoroughly pleased with the service I have received from Yuri Perez and Samantha Collins. As a non US citizen, I was completely in the dark regarding FIRPTA. The process was explained clearly and the service level remained thorough and timely throughout. Overall execution of the work done on my behalf was seamless.

I contacted FIRPTA Solutions in a massive panic after my UK based accountant was unable to deal with the FIRPTA withholding issue and closing was imminent on a land transaction. I was immediately contacted by Samantha Collins who was extremely knowledgeable, professional, personable, and responsive, and I can't thank her enough for her help here. 100% recommended.

Megan J and FIRPTA Solutions were amazing to deal with and provided me with excellent service. While trying to selling a house in the USA, things were in a big mess while trying to close the sale. I was not getting any help from the real estate agents or the title company. After receiving a lot of confusion misinformation, I got in touch with Megan and FIRPTA Solutions. They were given very little time before closing, but Megan was able to fix everything!!! She organized all the parties involved in the sale, produce all the required documents and greatly reduced the amount of withholding. Instead of having 15% of total amount of sale withheld for you knows how long, it worked out that only a small amount was withheld for 90 days or less. Megan worked it out so I didn’t owe anything to the IRS. FIRPTA solutions even produced my US year tax forms. All this was completed for little cost to me. I can’t say enough how impressed I am with the work Megan and FIRPTA Solutions completed for me and would highly recommend anyone buying or selling a house in the USA!!! Thanks again, you guys are awesome!!



This is the second time I have used FIRPTA Solutions. Very professional and get the job done - a quality vendor of this service.
