The paper being presented was just released:
February 27, Ruth Mason (from University of Virginia Law School): “Citizenship Taxation”
Thank you for sharing your summary. Interesting that they did talk about the lawsuit, at least for 10 minutes.
Now where is that video from the CBT/RBT debate in Toronto, May 2, 2014?
Embee, I think she did mention FBARs and the penalties. Even GATCA. But she emphasized tax filing. I hope my cute logo shows up this time. My daughter drew that when she was 6. I must have typed in the wrong email.
Cannot spell my name!
Thank you for your synopsis on this. Would you mind expanding on how Ms Mason defined citizenships? I wonder how many of these law students went home an had an OMG moment. As you say “I think that is the most dangerous and unethical thing about the US CBT — the OMG moment and its fallout” – what Ms Mason refers to in her paper as a trap set for us by the US government.
I won’t say much about one lawyer’s pessimistic attitude toward the ADCS lawsuit, other than to ask you what opinion others had of Joe Arvay, if any.
It would be great if some more Brockers can join the lively discussions over at the American Expatriates Facebook page (845 members and growing fast). It is easy to make up a fake Facebook account.
There are lots of DA and RO members participating there so the discussion can get a bit hot at times.
@bubblebustin. Umm I have this written in my brief note: “diff ways of defining citizenship” but I don’t remember what was said as I was playing fb scrabble. I know there is lots of disc on IBS about diff ways of getting citz but I am not sure if there are diff definitions. This probably refers to page 15 of her article (different categories of taxpayers). Sorry I cannot reply better but I am not a good listener.
