UPDATE April 16 2015
As John Richardson is the principal author of our submission, I spoke with him about the idea of turning it into an ebook. He very much appreciates all your kind comments and most of all, your positive energy. We will definitely make this into an ebook; he would like this endeavor to be consistent with our recent as well as past submissions.
With this is mind, we want to detail and describe the tragic impact of U.S. extra-territorial taxation on people deemed by the U.S. to be #Americansabroad. This would include: accidentals, (oops, non-meaningfuls, sorry Stephen, it’s a habit), border babies, via parents or grandparents or outright USCs, dual or not We want to know what you think is important, what needs to be added and so on. If you didn’t write your story before, now would be a good time to do so. Also, if you are on Twitter and not currently active or connected at the moment to our Twitter SWAT team, please get in touch with me either at the email below or tweet me at USExpatCanada. We need to be aware of this whole effort as one large, evolving submission which will serve as our base for the sole purpose of bringing down citizenship-based taxation. We want to keep moving on this project and get going on a few new aspects of it right away so stay tuned!

@USExpatCanada – #Fight CBT (please start using this hashtag!)
We did it! Just as promised by John Richardson our submission to the Senate Finance Committee is signed, sealed and delivered….Remember this? :
I also made it clear that Dr. Kish and I would be taking the initiative to “educate” the Committee about:
– what “citizenship taxation” really is; and
– the true effects that it has on “Americans” (recognizing that many of you do NOT consider yourselves to be U.S. citizens) in Canada and elsewhere.
I am happy to report to you that on February 14, 2015 the videos were made as planned.
I am happy to report that on April 9, 2014 Dr. Kish and I met with representatives of the Senate Finance Committee and had a “productive discussion”.
I am happy to report that, today, April 15, 2015 our submission to the Senate Finance Committee (consisting of a total of 7 separate submissions on various topics) has been delivered. One of the submissions was the text of the “Human Rights complaint to the United Nations“. We acknowledge the tremendous work that went into the creation and submission of the complaint.
We encourage you to look at our complete “Folder of Submissions” as follows:
I want to remind you that this is going to be a “slow process”. Be patient. Keep yourselves focused on the “long term” goal. The key is to remain patient and focused.
For all who submitted comments to be included, please see here.
Thank you so much for all who took the time to send in your letters & comments in support of this project. Please spend time and explore all seven of the submissions as each is a very important component of demonstrating to the US government how perverse and discriminatory U.S. Tax policy is, not only against U.S. Persons, but to every country and person who is connected to one. We need residence-based taxation. We want the ability to make use of our tax-deferred savings vehicles in our countries of choice. We deserve the right to have our bank accounts free from the prying eyes of FinCen. We demand the recognition that we are not tax cheats and traitors. We insist that the privacy rights of our “alien” spouses and children be respected. For those who cannot act on their own behalf, we must have the ability to make choices free of imposed US citizenship be it from immigration or tax status.
It is time. The U.S.must start living up to its claim of being the land of freedom and opportunity. It must address its own areas of human rights violations and act in the best interests of all. We will not be satisfied nor stop until we receive exactly that.
Well then it was a good guess!
Not sure if mine being one of your favorites is a good thing or not, given the realities of our situation.
Ah. Either they had not yet posted it when last I checked, or I only looked for it under the name I gave the PDF. In my cover letter I asked the committee not to use my real name. My child’s existence is, now was, unknown to the US gov. and I wished to keep it that way.
May I ask why mine is one of your favourites?
Because, Japan T, I could really feel your pain and frustration. You aren’t some fat cat living the champagne swilling life abroad, but a hard working family man who’s finding it impossible to deal with the demands of job and family and those of an unreasonable government which poses a threat to your very existence. I hope they listen, because if they don’t then they are deaf. And stupid.
Your comments mean more than I can convey.
…and thank you for your submission!
Thanks, Japan T, for your powerful submission to the Senate Finance Committee and all of our commenting here at Brock. You have told the story of many like you and your family who are / will be affected by this US extra-territorial absurdity. Take special care!
Too late to take special care, now that the bozos used my real name. I used my Brock name as the name of the PDF. I am terrified for my child.
Which is why I fight.
You are far from being alone when it comes to our children, Japan T. If the US aggressively comes after children born in other countries we’ll already have moved away from any negotiation and into a full state of war and all it entails – including open resistance and other unpleasantries. All’s fair in love and war – coming after our children involves both. Don’t mess with momma or papa bear, IRS!
And another, hear! Hear!
