Here is a fairly good article, published earlier today, on how FATCA makes US citizens abroad toxic:
“The law that makes U.S. expats toxic”
A few hours ago, I sent a quick note to the author, a law professor at Pepperdine University, complimenting her, but pointing out the issue of “accidental Americans” and similar cases. She responded within an hour or so, pointing to her 2013 WSJ article on precisely this:
“How to lose friends, citizens and influence” at http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424127887323848804578607472987119796
She is hoping:
a) her article will be reposted or linked, in order to get it number one article online
b) there will be good quality comments posted.
Professor Graffy gets it, that citizenship-based taxation is buckets of trouble.
Sadly I can’t read it due to no subscription. I tried connecting via facebook but it’s still blocked. Sounds promising though.
The link seems to fail to work when it’s copied. Try searching the headline and clicking on “news”.
I did what @Bubblebustin said to do, and then shared it to Facebook. It’s already been shared from there by a friend in the US. It’s a good article.
I just google the title. That works for me.
Could only see the lead-in paragraphs, but very glad to know it’s being talked about….
Try this link to read the whole article: (from American Expatriates facebook page)
Comments to this article are well worth reading but you must access the WSJ page. As others have stated do a search for “Google News” and paste the title of the article into the search bar there. It usually works but sometimes I need to clear my browser history to get access.
Found this… played around with WSJ… it hated me…
