Hundreds of English teachers leave South Korea each year to return home and do not fill out and account for their taxes correctly. In doing so they risk heavy penalties and fines later. KimchiMobile set out to ease the burden and stress that this process can cause by partnering with one of the best Expat tax professionals out there that understands both Korean and American tax laws.
Often expats are not aware that they should file tax returns each year for their entire stay in South Korea and only start to focus on the matter once they are months away from returning to their home country. This is where it’s handy to have a Certified Public Accountant who can inquire about your earnings and file it precisely and timely to make sure you are not penalized later.
No more worrying about filling out the correct forms.
Move back worry free.

Seung Kang has been helping US expats in Korea for the last decade. Helping expats both get a better grasp of the how their wages are taxes when returning to the United States as well as helping them fill out and complete the necessary forms that are required upon return.
Growing up in South Korea and practicing accountancy as well as financial planning for the last 2 decades in the USA, Seung knows both tax structures to a tee and can make sure you are informed of everything you need to know, as well as fill out everything you need so that you can have a piece of mind when returning home.
PEACE OF MIND WHEN RETURNING TO HOME
When teachers return home they have a lot of other things on their mind. Having to sort out something as complicated as taxes can make the whole process seem overbearing. It’s better to leave it in the hands of a professional so that you can focus on other pressing things.
MAXIMIZE YOUR RETURNS
Most expats are unaware that filing their taxes correctly can also end up saving them more money and maximizing the amount they get back from the IRS. Seung Kang will personally look at your situation and tell you which returns you are eligible for.
