    Reblogged this on U.S. Persons Abroad – Members of a Unique Tax, Form and Penalty Club and commented:
    ““We’ve seen people relinquish their citizenship in the past, so it’s not that these are extremely large numbers,” said Sabates. “What’s startling is that it’s happening at all. It’s not necessarily the expat that moves to Switzerland for a job, gets married, and ends up staying longer than they were thinking. It’s the children of that expat who have acquired citizenship by birth through their parents, and they may have no connections with the United States. They’re finding out that they have these tax-filing requirements at the same time that they’re finding out what being a U.S. citizen means. We’ve seen a lot of family-based citizenship abandonment where you’ve got a couple of kids who have gotten citizenship through their parents. Before they start getting into the working world and developing their wealth, the U.S. tax issues crop up and they’re relinquishing their citizenship.”
