June 15 Virtual Tax March and RBT Call Storm


June 15, 2017 is the automatic IRS filing extension deadline for Americans overseas. In order to draw attention to our taxation issues, as well as to underscore that Trump has yet to release his tax returns to the US public, you can join in a virtual Tax March. Take a photo of yourself holding the sign "Show me your Tax Returns" and post to social media.

As you probably know, the US is the only developed nation that taxes its citizens on their world-wide income.  As such, we are subject to taxation by the US on the income that we generate in our country of residence, no matter where we live, no matter how long we live abroad and regardless of whether we are taxed on that same income by our country of residence.

Our DA Taxation Task Force is spearheading a Grassroots campaign in support of Residency Based Taxation or RBT.

They are asking that we all pick up the phone to call our Representatives and Senators on June 15th - the tax deadline for international filers - and ask for their support for Residency Based Taxation. 

A Fact Sheet on Residency-based Taxation can be found here
