Americans in Auckland Message Board › VERY IMPORTANT! TAX ISSUE THAT AFFECT US! Please sign the petition
Hello to all members of Americans in Auckland.
With great trepidation, I have been following the recent actions of the US congress and IRS concerning tax filing requirements for US citizens living abroad. It is not a happy situation, in plain English, we are getting screwed! In their attempt to catch rich tax evaders, small fry like us are getting caught up in the net. And it could mean dire consequences. Not only expensive if you are compliant, but as drastic as catching us on entry to the US if we are not compliant! There is loads of information on this here: http://www.aca.ch/joo... and their recent newsletter: http://www.aca.ch/nu/...
But most important right now, PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION to congress and President Obama:
these new laws affect each and every US citizen residing overseas, whatever your immigration and financial status, both in the US and abroad. It is very easy to ignore and "not worry about it". But one day you will get caught out if these laws are not modified. Canada is already up in arms with millions of dual Canadian/American citizens facing huge penalties: http://www.theglobean...
Thanks for signing the petition today!
