About Kyoto Tax Service

Kyoto Tax Service specializes in the unique tax challenges facing American expatriates and non-U.S.-resident alien “green” card holders in Japan. We also provide tax service to Japanese and other non-resident alien investors of U.S. real estate or other U.S. assets. We work with our clients on a personal level to determine the best solutions for their unique needs, at a price which we believe is among the lowest you will find anywhere.

We take full advantage of internet technologies, including encrypted file transfer and e-filing, to provide complete and efficient service to clients located anywhere in Japan. If you are located in the Kansai area of Japan (or will be passing through), and prefer the more traditional way of doing business, we can also set up a face-to-face meeting.

Clients will be provided with a pdf file copy of their return, and a paper print-out can also be provided at no extra charge.

About the Owner of Kyoto Tax Service

My name is Robert Blömeke. I am, first and foremost, an IRS Enrolled Agent. Unlike CPAs or lawyers, Enrolled Agents are the only tax practitioners whose qualification is exclusively indicative of a specialization in taxation, and whose licensure is issued directly by the IRS. As an Enrolled Agent, I have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. My EA credentials can be verified here. Incidentally, I am also a Delaware-certified CPA (not in public practice). My license number is CC-0006660, and can be verified here. (Copy and paste my license number into the relevant field. Other fields can be left blank.) The IRS provides a very informative page describing the different tax preparer credentials.
