• Good to see digital nomads posting about these issues. Education is important and tax advice from a professional is equally important. Both are critical so that you can speak intelligently to your advisor and make sure you are in compliance.

  • Have you looked into Estonian E-Citizenship ? It could well be a solution for a few Digital Nomads at least.

    Awesome post. Tax is one of the things you not only cannot but should not avoid. Compliance is critical to avoid any unpleasantness whether from your home country or the country you are working in. Homework is always a great idea no matter how well versed you believe you are

    You cleared my mind about double taxation treaties! Now I know I don’t need to bother about these since I plan to be tax resident in only one country. I wonder what you would advise about getting a 2nd citizenship. I’m Dutch and I could quicky acquire the German citizenship as well. I’m planning to retire in Thailand or Peru. I’m thinking “if the Dutch start taxing their citizens abroad like the US, I drop the Dutch citizenship and keep the German one”. But this could cut both ways. I wonder if two passports = two sources of trouble, or if two passports = more options and more ways of muddying the waters. I realise there’s no clear-cut answer for this.

    Great info. Question is, what do you do? Where do you spend most of your time, where is your residency, where do you de late taxes?
