Allure Accounting

Allure Accounting is much more than facts and figures or your typical CPA-stereotype. Our clients are no impersonal tax ID’s, and we are anything but your run-of-the-mill tax accountant. There is nothing we haven’t seen in our 20 years in the tax industry. Some things brought almost tears to our eyes and some things almost made us faint. The only feeling we want our clients to have is peace of mind and the certainty that we take great care of their tax matters. We are not a one-man-show who is preparing your tax returns out of a garage/office. We are extraordinary – and up to meet the requirements of our clients!

Our entire team consists of 27 employees (more to follow!!) in 2 time zones who take care of all your tax needs almost around the clock.
We invite you to make an appointment for your free initial meeting and welcome you to our offices in Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, and Hamburg, Germany.

No matter if you need support with your US tax return, the sale of your US property or the formation of a company in the United States – we are always your right choice!

  • We would like to thank all of you for 7 years of always excellent, competent, and friendly service.
    We recommend Allure Accounting Inc. without any hesitation.

First class Service

Tax Preparation for Individuals

  • Individual income tax returns for VISA-holders, Green Card holders and US citizens with ties in a foreign country and/or income from a foreign country (1040)
  • Foreign bank accounts and other foreign reporting  (FATCA)
  • Foreign business and investment activity reporting
  • Streamlined filing process with the IRS for international individuals that have failed to file timely US tax returns

You have successfully passed your Green Card interview and took the chance to finally move to the Promised Land.
Your dreams have become reality. What a fantastic accomplishment!
Make sure that you do not forget the most important rule: never mess with the IRS. Always pay your taxes and file your tax returns, because Uncle Sam is not amused when it comes to taxes.

The whole topic can be a bit overwhelming and it’s not easy to find your way through the tax-jungle alone. You can, of course, find a “specialist” virtually on every corner, who offers you tax advice for cheap to receive your biggest tax refund. You will certainly find “tax pros” who prepare your tax returns for a pittance after they gained their knowledge in a very detailed 2-day seminar. You should be careful who you trust with your tax affairs because your Green Card depends on it.

Little Fun Fact at the end:
US Citizens with ties to a foreign country and/or income from a foreign country are obliged to report this income on their US Tax Return and might be required to file FBAR.
Your usual 1040 personal tax return is thereby not sufficient anymore.
Fortunately, you have us!

For Foreign Individuals

  • Income tax returns for non-resident aliens receiving income in the US, for example, from rental properties (1040NR)
  • FRIPTA applications and filings when a foreign person sells US real estate (8288, 8288-A, 8288-B)
  • Application for US Taxpayer ID numbers (W-7)
  • Sales and tourist tax returns for vacation rental properties
  • Estate and gift tax returns
  • IRS certifying acceptance agent

You made your dream come true and bought a property in the Sunshine State? Congratulations!
Renting out the new house is a win-win situation. That way all the running expenses are covered by the rent payments. That is almost a no-brainer! A lot of new lessors are not aware, though, that with the convenience of this rental income a number of duties come up.

1040NR, W-7, FIRPTA, Sales & Tourist Tax … Come again? Pardon me?

If you want to save yourself the headache of all the nerve-racking communication with the IRS, the FL Department of Revenue and the county (and, of course, the penalties), you’ve come to the right place. It doesn’t matter whether you need support with the purchase of your US property, or if you have questions about the 15% tax withholding when you sell your property again, or about your Sales and Tourist Tax – our entire team is happy to assist you.


  • Bookkeeping services
  • Payroll services
  • 1120 corporate income tax returns for corporations with foreign shareholders

  • 1065 partnership income tax returns for partnerships with foreign partners

  • SS-4 application for tax ID numbers for corporations/LLCs with foreign shareholders/partners
