Excellent podcast today, in which Peter Paulsen interviews international tax lawyer John Richardson on “The Challenges Faced by [Americans Abroad] and the Prospects for Change.” John explains the various interlocking reasons why the difficulties of US citizens abroad worsened critically with FATCA, and gives specifics of the problems facing US citizens abroad as a result.
This following statement, regarding the Isaac Brock Society, really stuck me because it reminded me of how each of us, by adding pieces of information, not to mention some very serious original research, have built a really big and useful repository. I want to thank everyone who’s contributed to the site — even if you only made one comment, that may have been a very useful addition to the compendium.
“To this date, there is no site that contains the volume of research, the sort of meticulousness of discussion on these issues . . . . And so, it has been a very, very good source of education … comfort .. meeting place .. for people whose lives have been turned up and down by these issues.”
Isaac Brock Society is mentioned between approximately 22.30 and 25.00.
BUT this podcast is really worth a full listen – concisely and clearly covers the egregious situation as it is in May 2021.
