Excellent visibility for ADCS in this new article by Robert Wood in Forbes. Comments are open.
The Alliance for the Defense of Canadian Sovereignty (www.adcs-adsc.ca) sounds a little like a new world militia or a trade group promoting maple syrup. Actually, it’s neither, and American legislators may soon learn that too well. The organization has lawyered up, hiring a Washington D.C. lawyer tasked with exploring legal options to reverse the practices of the United States government. Why?
Because the U.S. government is making it downright difficult for Canadians that are also ‘Accidental Americans’ from freeing themselves of the burdens of U.S. citizenship. Accidental Americans include those born in the U.S. but who left at a young age to live permanently abroad. The organization claims they have no meaningful ties to the U.S. but are stuck with a lifetime of U.S. taxation on their non-U.S. income. Ouch!
