Working remotely abroad? Follow these special tax guidelines.

In the digital age, Americans are increasingly seeking remote jobs—giving them the flexibility to work from anywhere in the world, all from their own laptop.

Can common law marriage yield tax breaks?

Common law marriage is a non-traditional type of marital union that does not involve a ceremony, a wedding certificate or an officiant. Under such an arrangement, a couple lives together, acts as husband and wife and holds themselves out to the community as being married. By so doing, they are treated as legally married.
