Taxation of #Americansabroad: @Thunfinancial Wall Street Journal Op-Ed follows article from @SaundersWSJ


The above tweet references an Op-Ed by Thun Financial’s David Kuenzi which recently appeared in the Wall Street Journal. This is a nicely done article which adds reinforcement to the excellent journalism by the Wall Street Journal’s Laura Saunders and Liam Pleven which appeared in the Wall Street Journal on June 18, 2014 and (discussing the new IRS Streamlined procedures) on  June 19, 2014. 
(The new Streamline Procedures were discussed by various “stakeholders” extensively:
The OVDP and  Streamlined Historians – Perspectives  of various Americans Abroad:
– at the Isaac Brock Society here and here
– by American Citizens abroad here
The second citizenship advocates:
– by Mark Nestmann here
The accounting firms:
– from Frank Hirth (U.K. based) here
The “What is non-willfull” group  here:
– by Stephen Mopsick here and earlier here
– by Patrick Martin here
– more by Patrick Martin here
– by Jack Townsend here
– by Robert Steinberg (particularly good analysis) here
The “Technicians” AKA “who is streamlined intended for” here:
– by Moodys here
– by Virgina La Torre Jeker here
– by Jack Townsend here
– by Robert Steinberg here)
Those who recognize that citizens of certain countries may have a second level of “home country specific issues” (Iran):

Interestingly both Mr. Kuenzi (as a presenter) and Ms. Saunders (as a journalist) attended the recent conference on U.S. Citizenship-based taxation conference which was held at the University of Toronto on May 2, 2014. The Toronto citizenship-based taxation Conference was a great success.
