US TAX ADVISORY FIRM OF THE YEAR, GLOBAL TAX NETWORK US, LLC

We’ve all heard the story about that entrepreneur who started a pretty successful business out of a garage. Believe it or not, GTN’s beginning has a similar storyline, except that we found ourselves working out of a basement in Minnesota, a living room in Canada, and from the front seat of a car in the UK. All strangers at the time, all with years of large firm experience, and all with a keen interest in improving the way mobility tax service was being handled. Through the power of the Internet and the niche nature of mobility tax, three strangers from three countries joined forces in 1999. The motive was simple: shift the focus back to the client. Since that time, our focus has been on building relationships with like-minded firms around the world. Our business thrives on the adventures of our clients. We work with globetrotters, world travelers, and international businessmen and women. Our mission is to support their journey. We do this by handling the intricacies of their complex tax situation and simplifying it for both the individual assignee and their employer. Mobility tax consulting and compliance is all we do and because of that sole focus, we are able to offer our clients more. Furthermore, each client has access to our most experienced team members. As a result, questions can be answered quicker, work done more efficiently and our clients find us more approachable. Our dedication to our core values that revolves around our people and clients is why GTN continues to attract and retain amazing talent.
