Renounce U.S. Citizenship
Many U.S. citizens abroad are considering renouncing their U.S. citizenship. The reasons are outlined in the media and blogs like: The Isaac Brock Society, Renounce U.S. Citizenship, Maple Sandbox and more.
American Citizens Abroad is a wonderful source of information for U.S. citizens abroad. To put it simply: Relinquishing U.S. citizenship, whether by renunciation for through another act of relinquishment is becoming a necessity for survival.
RenunciationGuide.Com – The History
The attack on Americans Abroad began shortly after Barack Obama became President. The current U.S. government through a variety of laws and procedures presumes that U.S. citizens abroad are “tax cheats” and treats them accordingly. As a result, many Americans Abroad recognize that they must either move to the United States or renounce their citizenship.
Interestingly, a site – renunciationguide.com – provided basic information about the “nuts and bolts” of renouncing U.S. citizenship. The site was generous and allowed for anyone to use the content. In February of 2013, renunciationguide.com ceased to exist.
I have moved the content of the renunciationguide.com to this new site renouncecitizenship.ca
The law and circumstances of renunciation are evolving. I invite readers through their comments to add to and update this valuable resource.
With “FATCA Hunt” beginning many many people will be playing the “Expatriation games”!
