    That’s very inter­es­ting. I’ve been here 30 años. Tengo la intención de renunciar a mis EE.UU.. citi­zen­ship soon due to the new inva­sive tax laws being fois­ted upon U.S citi­zens who don’t live in the U.S. I can still visit on my Cana­dian pas­sport and I don’t ever intend to move back to the U.S. any­way. No more filing on forei­gn income either. It’s very much like taxa­tion without repre­sen­ta­tion since I get no bene­fit from paying those taxes any­way and no other coun­try taxes people who do not live there.

    With the ban­king dis­clo­sure now, which gives infor­ma­tion about my forei­gn spouse and the very dra­co­nian mea­sures recent­ly taken I’m just done. I also don’t want my Cana­dian son to have to deal with the conse­quences of the IRS at my death. Why should I have to put them through that any lon­ger. I tal­ked to ano­ther per­son today who is relin­qui­shing their U.S. citi­zen­ship over these issues. It’s sad to say but, I’m afraid I am pushed into this. I don’t take kind­ly to being trea­ted like a cri­mi­nal by assump­tion nor the very, very inva­sive prac­tices taken up recent­ly by the U.S. govern­ment. Far too puni­tive for me.
