Tax and financial planning webinars, online events on offer, courtesy of U.S. expat groups, companies

While some cities, countries and jurisdictions are beginning to relax their lockdown rules somewhat, travel bans and other restrictions continue to prevent people from being able to meet up in anything like the way they would have in the days before the global Covid pandemic took hold last year...

So, as we've done a few times previously since then, we're posting in our news section a selection of events from our regular "Listings" page (www.americanexpatfinance.com/news/item), to help some of these online event sponsors and their audiences to find each other – especially now, as tax reporting season trundles on, and the latest round of CARES Act stimulus checks are arriving in expat mailboxes...
