ACA Town Hall Evening Rome Wednesday, 20 September 2017
ACA began in Rome where on September 20th we hosted a Town Hall Evening at Hotel Domus in central Rome. The event was well attended by the local American community, including representatives from the US Embassy who gave a short review of the US citizen services available from the US State Department.
This presentation was followed by an ACA update on its advocacy work for RBT in Washington, DC. Marylouise Serrato, Executive Director of ACA updated attendees on ACA’s revenue estimating work with District Economics Group (DEG) and our door knocking up on the Hill with Congressional offices and the tax writing Committees.
Francesca Romana Rubino, an independent legal services professional and enrolled agent of the IRS then presented, “Top items every American taxpayer in Italy should know about.” Francesca specializes in expatriate tax, social security, immigration and legal issues for foreigners in Italy and Italians abroad. She handles preparation of Italian and US tax returns for individuals/expatriates.
Francesca’s presentation covered a wealth of information on US tax filing obligations for Americans living overseas, as well as, Italian tax filing requirements. Her presentation is available for members in the members-only section of the website.
A Q&A session followed and the evening closed with traditional Roman “aperitivo” with snacks (more like a meal remember we were in Italy!) and drinks. This gave attendees an opportunity to speak directly with the presenters and mingle with other Americans living in Rome.
