The following post appeared on the RenounceUSCitizenship blog. It discusses an issue which, if true, makes it impossible for Canadian citizens resident in Canada, who are also U.S. citizens to retain U.S. citizenship.
I intend to do a good bit of research on this topic (and I urge those of you with a background in this area) to provide comments. It is clear that U.S. citizenship-based taxation is a form of evil, the Exit Tax and FATCA are on a par with the most vile in history.
Furthermore, it is clear that the U.S. is using the taxation of “Americans abroad” to attack the “tax base” of other countries.
The claim/assumption that the U.S. has the “sovereign right” to tax its citizens in any way that it chooses is the same as the claim that the neighbor next door has the right to rape your wife. Of course that may be exactly what those Harper backbenchers actually believe.
Analysis suggests that Cdn retirement accounts of those Cdn #Americansabroad always subject to double taxation http://t.co/pkv1P95Zs2
