— John Richardson – lawyer for "U.S. persons" abroad (@ExpatriationLaw) September 4, 2014
Reflecting on my day I realized that there are really four kinds of U.S. Taxable
Persons abroad. Each one of them has his own set of problems. Interestingly, my day included discussions with a member of each group.
They can be grouped as follows:
File U.S. tax returns? U.S. tax compliant? What is their problem?
Yes Yes Inability to live normal life*
Yes No Subject to penalties for mistakes**
No Yes Don’t have any income***
No No OMG moment is coming****
