Pavla Melkova

I love helping my clients with their US tax issues, with their annual tax compliance, multiple years’ compliance, or with special inquiries such as inheritance or US pension claims, tax refunds, or a sale of their US assets. I feel at ease working with my clients and I love their loyalty and seeing them year after year returning to get their tax return done.

My professional and personal background makes it easier to understand my clients with dual nationalities which is a fundamental part of my own personal and professional experience. I was born, studied, and started my professional career in Prague, Czech Republic, then spent seventeen years working and studying in the U.S., returning after that to Europe, to a special place I call my home now – Kusnacht in Zurich canton, Switzerland.

If you want to find out how I can help you, contact me, I will be happy to meet you.
