The expat sites I frequent have forums dedicated to taxes, healthcare, visas, as well as forums on the other aspects of living in a particular country as reported by actual expats living there.
I've found two general problems with such sites. The few with non-trivial income streams chase away or suppress users with opinions unfavorable to encouraging new expats or who question the accuracy of the 5000 plus post 'experts' who write in vague generalities and give unasked for advice instead of answering questions. The other sort of site usually has a core group of users who have nothing better to do than sit in front of a computer, criticizing new questions and questioners, all the while continuing arguments, trading barbs and making inside jokes in conversations that started years ago.
