Welcome to the North American tax attaché’s webpages

Under no circumstances can the taxation office intervene in solving a specific case.

Before sending us your letter/email/fax (the taxation office doesn’t accept walk-ins or questions by phone), please check that the information requested is not available on the webpages of the Embassy’s taxation office.
