Since aliens who reside illegally in the US are not “US Persons”, and are outside of the IRS compliance system, in that there is no way to enforce any reporting requirements on them, and because the present regime has declared its policy of not deporting illegal aliens who commit minor crimes, I am seeking to become an illegal alien in the land of my birth.
Because the US presumes the power to force me to report and pay taxes on income I earn outside of the US (unlike almost evey other country) it seems that is the only way I can be free of this particular tyranny.
My husbands ex business partner is leaving the US. He’s 65 so I’m assuming it’s permanent. I certainly felt a bit envious because I see this country as a sinking ship, like Weimer Republic Germany.
Giving up your US citizenship isn’t difficult.All you have to do is prove that you have another citizenship (many Americans are entitled to another citizenship) and go to a US Embassy/Consulate abroad and follow the simple steps.If you’re gonna do it for tax purposes you’d be wise to get all you assets out of the country first so the IRS can’t get their filthy hands on it.
People who turn against their own country cannot be trusted by anyone.
You had your reasons why they shouldn't leave, but apparently they aren't strong enough reasons to keep these folks from seeking a better life elsewhere.
People usually act in their own best interests, usually to gain pleasure and avoid pain. Motivation rarely gets more complicated than that.
Lovely - we're trading our educated productive for illiterate tax consumers.
Even though he and his wife pay taxes on a home in California, the state has denied them in-state college tuition
Yet they want to give illegals in-state tuition rates. Where is the incentive to become a citizen?
