    Reblogged this on U.S. Persons Abroad – Members of a Unique Tax, Form and Penalty Club and commented:
    “The point is that Americans abroad face deep discrimination and handicaps in saving for the long-term and for retirement due to U.S. tax policies which limit their investment possibilities.”

      This is absolutely true. I had a friend who retired in Asia, passed away last year and even if he settled his tax and all that, it was not enough to really survive as he was also under constant medication…hospitalized several times but the good thing is that his partner and some of his friends were there to support him… although it was not what he wanted after serving his country, the US government failed him in many ways…

    Laws equally stupid as #FATCA: Securities Act of 1933

    Before FATCA, global banks were used to stupid regulations regarding US persons. This act was the reason for it.

    The ban on US persons buying US securities from outside the Land of The Free was madein 1933. There were astute banks that knew those rules. In Scandinavia, there were some astute persons making the rules, but no one ever enforced them.

    FATCA has now made it a number one objective to screw expats.
