Very interesting interview with our friend Keith Redmond and we also heard from Petros, Atticus and Marilyn. Michael DeBlis is now talking about FBAR…Kat Jennings is very understanding about the plight of expats, very genuine………
Keith is extremely articulate.
what i am just thinking as he mentioned Bopp suit, very unlikely any mention of our lawsuit in this conference 🙁
Wish we had John Richardson prior to the last two. Although, these dry and seemingly thorough presentations are important for some (especially those who determine they will handle their US compliance themselves (I sure couldn’t!) or other decisions like that of doing nothing after getting a CLN), I hope people will hang in there to hear John’s more likely engaging and informative presentation.
Seems so far we are hearing about persons (except the affected persons, Ruth, Marilyn and Peter) who are / want to remain US citizens rather than those who decide to expatriate.
Keith’s forward to the presentations, followed by three *real affected persons* was a good start.
We have yet to hear from John Richardson — hope we hear about ADCS-ADSC then.
All of these penalties give me a headache.
I hope Ginny and Gwen aren’t listening to “Chip” or they’ll be saying bye-bye to their life savings and packing their bags for their rendition to a US penitentiary. I’m going to shut him off and wait for John Richardson who is up next … I’m sure he’ll mention ADCS.
I am pretty sure Gwen isn’t
I don’t think John has mentioned ADCS in these talks……..I am just about to update above to let people know he is up in less than 1/2 hour guaranteed to be a little more lively! ;-P
Honestly, what shocks me is that these compliance persons:
*don’t make a very strong distinction between resident US citizens & US citizens abroad
*act like this is all so very reasonable.
*these presentations are about how citizenship based taxation affects the lives of citizens abroad and/or expatriation. They are not about trying to deal with FATCA lawsuit but Tax Connections has posted John’s recent posts on the Martineau decision on the Tax Connections blog.
Part 2: Why Justice Martineau’s Decision Has Handed @ADCSovereignty The Framework For Ultimate Victory – The Importance of “Staying The Course
Part 1: Justice Martineau Provides @ADCSovereignty The Only Thing Worse Than A Root Canal
My bad for bringing up the idea the lawsuit won’t be mentioned today…….
CBT has to be abolished, EmBee!!!!!!!!!!!
So many don’t know any of this — would they, still, ever believe it?
@ Tricia Moon
I think you’re right. She has nerves of steel.
oh dear, I meant she probably wasn’t watching it…… again, my bad……..
@ Tricia Moon
Oh … just as well. That dude was a downer. I have other words I could use but there would be a $10K penalty for saying them.
I was ready to slash my wrists listening to that guy before John, the only thing that stopped me was wanting to strangle him for loving FATCA so much!
Thank you to John Richardson for his two excellent and very powerful presentations. If anyone can listen to these and still not get it, there is no hope. Thanks to Tax Connections for this seminar and webcast — so easy to connect.
Thanks for the webinar, which I was able to watch in Europe, partially, mainly John Richardson. It was very interesting. I actually got nauseous listening to it. When he says that people sometimes think he’s making this up, I totally get it. People tend to say “no big deal, I just file my taxes” they have no idea of all the ramifications. People say “just give up your passport” but you can’t.
Seems to be that it’s almost impossible to be compliant if one has lived a normal life abroad for many years without planning for FATCA (which did not exist). That said, one can just hope for the best, file away (forms forms forms) and keep fingers crossed. Fascinating how he concludes that being a US citizen actually means one is less free than others. How totally counter-intuitive to the usual homelander narrative.
Kudos to Mr Richardson.
I was busy all day yesterday and didn’t get a chance to listen live. I planned to listen to the whole thing today and just settled in to get started when I noticed that the Keith Redmond interview is not clickable. Does anyone know if that portion will be made available? I had so hoped to hear that.
Thanks for the warning about the “downer” segments. I’ll just skip those to avoid ruining my day. I’ve heard all that crap before and certainly don’t need to hear it again! I look forward to listening to John.
@Tricia Moon, “don’t make a very strong distinction between resident US citizens & US citizens abroad”
You should state;
“don’t make a very strong distinction between resident US citizens & persons overseas with clinging US Nationality.”
People like Chip are operating from the ethos that US Citizenship is wanted, valuable and a gift/blessing.
Hence my appeal to Brockers and @ADCS to please stop using Dual Nationality and start stating “clinging nationality” with regards to US Citizenship.
@Calgary, “CBT has to be abolished, EmBee!!!!!!!!!!!”
Was CBT a problem prior to 1975 before the US Citizenship rules were changed by the Courts? NO
CBT is a problem when citizenship is too difficult to get rid of. In teh old days, it was an easy to lose and you were quickly tossed from the plantation.
So I would argue that CBT is not the root problem, rather the root problem is clinging nationality that you can not get rid of.
Maybe Donald Sutherland should renounce Canadian citizenship because he can’t vote in Canada.
Clinging nationality that one (including my son and others without *requisite mental capacity* and with a parent, guardian or trustee unable to act on their behalf) cannot get rid of is, absolutely, the main issue. US residence-based taxation would in an instant solve the problem for those otherwise entrapped in US citizenship persons.
My US citizenship seemed easy to lose in 1975 when I was warned that I would lose it by becoming a Canadian citizen. Somehow, THAT supposed contract did not work out.
Both prongs are problematic — which is the chicken and which is the egg?
I just realize that I have had another birthday and I want to see this solved for my son and others before my time runs out.

During the Internet Tax Summit, all of the Speakers did an excellent job!
When you collect all of this information together it is shocking. Within a week to ten days we will have the US Citizens Living Abroad packaged up for those interested. It takes time, money, servers and about a team of 6-7 people to make it all available in the cloud.
Glad you all enjoyed the program. Every speaker brought value to the event that is certain to enlighten many. Thank you for your support!
