Actor Johnny Depp has moved out of France and returned to America because he didnt want to become a permanent French resident and pay income tax there.
Depp has now moved his family out of France after government officials asked him to become a permanent resident, as he feared he would end up paying tax in both countries. He tells Britains The Guardian newspaper,
France wanted a piece of me. They wanted me to become a permanent resident. Permanent residency status which changes everything. They just want

And what, are you for double taxation of American citizens and companies living and operating overseas?
So you essentially work for free.
And I guess people don’t even want to be movie stars or ball players FOR FREE.
Welcome back, Mr. Depp and I hope you’ve learned something.
Now that he’s “safe”, Depp will come back here and lobby for more Socialism. He figures he can always find a refuge somewhere.
Depp is an example of someone who is great at his craft, yet dumb as a box of rocks.
Like Bono and U2, who is now incorporated in Holland to avoid paying Irish taxes, but chastises the US for not giving more money to Africa.
Er ist ein Depp!
“Welcome home Johnny. Oh by the way you are just in time for the next Obama fund raiser. That will be $100,000 or you will never work again.”
It’s all fun and games for these idiots until someone actually presents THEM with the bill for the Socialism they promote.
I can’t seem to find exactly how much is the tax hike.
So you essentially work for free.
Johnnies coming epiphany: “I’m, I’m, I guess I’m a REPUBLICAN!!!”

BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) — Hollywood star Johnny Depp said on Wednesday the United States was a stupid, aggressive puppy and he would not live there until the political climate changed.
The 40-year-old actor, who stars in the “Pirates of the Caribbean,” told the German news magazine Stern he was happier staying in the south of France with his wife, the French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, and their two children.
“America is dumb, it’s like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive,” he said.
“My daughter is four, my boy is one. I’d like them to see America as a toy, a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling and then get out,” said the star of the off-beat films “Edward Scissorhands” and “Dead Man.”
Depp slammed George W. Bush’s administration for its criticism of French opposition to the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
“I was ecstatic they re-named ‘French Fries’ as ‘Freedom Fries’. Grown men and women in positions of power in the U.S. government showing themselves as idiots,” he told Stern.”
How ironic, to the day, 9 years ago!
I thought it was 75%.
“75% tax rate on those who make over 1 million Euros per year.”
He needs to stay where he is.
Ya can’t make this stuff up.
typical liberal hypocrite
France is imposing a 75% income tax rate on the rich folk.
That ought to solve all of their problems
Isn’t Canada was the place where all the cool kids go to have their cake and eat it, too?
Hey Depp ya leftard, ever hear the phrase “eventually they run out of other people’s money”? Well, you’re “other people,” and of obastars is re-elected, he’ll bleed you and your family dry, too. But you’re probably too stupid to grasp what that means. Fool.
American doesn’t need you, Mr. Depp you liberal hypocrite!
Geez if he pays the French 75% and the US 50%, he’ll owe money. Working for free would be better.
Yes, and then there is Gwyneth Paltrow who fled this awful country to live in wonderful England, but returned to the US to give birth. Guess socialized medicine isn’t so grand after all.
“Ya cant make this stuff up.”
I guess he didn’t want to pay his fair share...
You should familiarize yourself with such foreign concepts as courtesy and good manners before posturing on the internet as a genius superior to all others there.
I remember when all that needed to keep a thread alive was "bumping" it.
That is no longer possible.
Well, I guess we predicted this, didn’t we?
Which means you are a slave. Communism and socialism are all about going back a millennium or two. Back to a time when government was the slave master and the general public were the slaves.
Well Johnny you lib pusbag, these are the kinds of people you vote for and help get elected, they are just asking for a little more than you’re used to. Just evolve and surrender your money they know how to use it better than you do.
akinny gwinnie also is back in the USSA, just bought a manse in Hollywood and enrolled kids in US schools
Britain’s loss,our loss
Just ask Johnny. He'll tell you.
Johnny is dumb, like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive.
So inquiring minds want to know if Depp left Socialist France for Socialist California?
