This week I chat with Heather Ryan aka the Tax Queen.
When it comes to the digital nomad lifestyle people are always asking questions about where to get mail, what State should I pick as my domicile, internet solutions and of course the dreaded taxes and what tax challenges do we face as digital nomads.
Heather and her husband (and dog) have been traveling the country as digital nomads for a little over 3 years. Heather was and still is a tax consultant and shares the ups and downs of taking your business on the road. She has found an amazing niche with being a tax consultant for digital nomads while being a digital nomad herself.
tax-queen.com is where you can find her blog that has a ton of insights to all things taxes, domicile questions, and you can request a consultation as well.
