TAX REFUND USA


ABOUT US

MAG-TAX company has been specialising in the support of refunding foreign taxes for over 20 years. During many years of our activity, we have gained vast experience that smaller and shorter-operated companies cannot show off. Over the years, we have encountered all possible difficulties, unusual questions from the authorities, so we know very well the tax and official realities in countries such as the USA, Austria, the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

We do our work with commitment, reliability and priority. Our main goal is customer’s satisfaction. We always try to make the settlement as profitable as possible, and the process itself does not seem very complicated. We do not keep documents - if we have complete information, we immediately send the tax return to foreign offices. We also inform the client about the estimated tax refund amount and the expected date of receipt of the decision. During the term of the contract, we additionally translate the correspondence and respond to the office's inquiries.

TAX REFUND FROM USA

Anyone who has legally worked in USA can apply for a  tax refund. Settlement is possible up to 3 years back (currently for the years 2019-2021). USA tax refunds usually take from 3 to 6 months, and may be extended in exceptional cases.

MAG-TAX RECOVERIES THE TAX FROM THE USA UNDER A TAX AGREEMENT SIGNED BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.
WITH US YOU CAN RECOVER UP TO 100% OF THE TAX PAID!
IN ADDITION, MAG-TAX AS THE ONLY COMPANY IN POLAND HAS A PTIN TAX NUMBER  GIVEN BY THE TAX OFFICE (IRS) TO REGISTERED TAX AGENTS.

W-2 OR 1042-S DOCUMENTS
The document necessary to submit an application for a tax refund from the USA is W-2 or 1042-S issued by the employer. If you do not have any of the above documents, you can settle your accounts on the basis of monthly PAYSLIPS. The documents above show information about your income (Wages, tips, other compensation) and advances collected for federal tax (Federal income tax withheld) and State income tax.

NOTE! Documents on the basis of which the settlement should be made are W-2 or 1042-S (annual tax cards). Billing on the basis of these documents is more reliable than on the basis of Payslips, because the information on the payslips does not always correspond to the data that the office has.

While working in the USA, the following taxes may be deducted:

Federal Tax (approx. 10% of income) - with income not exceeding USD 10,000, we apply for a 100% federal tax refund
State Tax (approx. 1-10% of income) - this tax refund depends on the tax regulations of particular states
Social Security Tax - You cannot claim this tax back
Medicare Tax - This tax is not recoverable

State Tax is not collected / refunded in the following states:
Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Wyoming
