[SEPTEMBER 27, 2016 UPDATE: “The Hill” today picked up on the upcoming House Oversight Committee hearings on FATCA. Obviously the fight will be challenging and there are lots of reasons to complain and be skeptical about an attempt by some U.S. Congresspeople to kill FATCA — note the tax compliance pundit in the Hill article who justifies FATCA because Treasury has spent a lot of money on it — but the FATCA hearing will happen despite the naysayers.]
Recently, Representative Mark Meadows introduced a bill in the U.S. Congress (complementary to a similar bill in the U.S. Senate) to repeal FATCA.
Witnesses are now being sought who have been significantly harmed by FATCA and are willing to testify at the Congressional hearing on FATCA in Washington D.C. Details on timings, length of testimony etc. are to be worked out. If you are interested in testifying please send Keith Redmond an email at: FATCA_Testimonials@outlook.com
Although a focus is FATCA, if you have been significantly harmed by U.S.-imposed citizenship-based taxation, which is enforced by FATCA, please also consider testifying at the hearing.
