Greg Swanson of PurpleExpat.org created a change.org petition to abolish “citizenship-based taxation”. You can still sign it. But, as it stands only 700 people in the whole wide world – even though they have nothing to lose – signed this petition. The problem is not the effectiveness of the petition. The problem is that Americans abroad as a group will not stand up for themselves.
Jackie Bugnion (formerly of ACA and a well respected American overseas) requested that this petition be shared. Hopefully there will be a sufficient number of Americans overseas who will sign it. #FATCA #TTFI https://t.co/uUIAor9D9Z
