Renouncing US Citizenship


No matter where you are in the world, as a US citizen you cannot escape the reach of IRS and your obligation as a US citizen to file US taxes. The only way to truly leave the US tax system behind is by renouncing your US citizenship. Renunciation may help in relieving you from future filing requirements, but there are also significant tax implications, especially if you are deemed a “covered expatriate.” Of course this is a drastic step, but for some people it may be the best for their particular situation, and for those people, we are here to help.
