American Moving to Germany – Gimme Some Truth for US Expats Podcast

Feb 16, 2022 | Investment Concepts

Thinking about moving to Germany as an American? Well, you’re definitely not alone.

We continue our country-specific journey for U.S. expats with another stop in Western Europe. Though we haven’t dedicated a lot of written content previously to Germany, we know from visitors to our website that it’s right up there among top destinations. Including the U.S., it ranks as our third-highest source of visitors, behind only the U.K., which was our first country-specific destination on Gimme Some Truth for Expats. And, several sources back that claim up, listing the number of Americans in Germany as more than 200,000.

In the words of Syl Michelin – Walkner Condon’s resident CFA® – Germany is generally a high tax jurisdiction. With that in mind, the journey to Germany centers a lot around the subject of taxation for Americans, whether that’s a short-term stay or a long-term stay. Syl is joined on the episode by Stan Farmer, CFP®, J.D., and Keith Poniewaz, Ph.D., as our full team of U.S. expat financial advisors dives into all things Deutschland when it comes to investing and managing their money.
