Renouncing US Citizenship TaxesImplications of Giving Up American Citizenship
No matter where you live in the world, as a US citizen you still have an obligation to file US taxes. One option for no longer filing taxes in the United States is to renounce 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”. A covered expat is a US citizen with over $2M of net worth and/or an average annual net tax liability for the preceding 5 years of $161,000 or more (indexed for inflation.
Of course, renouncing 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.

After living abroad for two decades, I finally made the decision to expatriate. Not only was I facing the complexities of the final return, but also several often overlooked returns and reporting requirements to bring myself up to 100% compliance. As the deadline for my renunciation appointment bore down, Vincenzo and crew got everything in shape. It was a wild ride, but they made it go as smoothly as possible. I’m now living in a country where even the “complicated” personal income tax returns take about 15 minutes to complete. It was a big step, but I’m glad I took it and glad that Vincenzo and crew helped me along the way.
