    Check your local Pride event at our calendar here and share your participation with us! Send photos, tag us, or use the hashtag #DAItalyPride so we can find you!

    Residency-Based Taxation is gaining traction!

    The DA Tax Team, in collaboration with Democrat Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia and Republican Rep. George Holding of North Carolina, is making headway reforming dual-taxation on American citizens living abroad! 

    What can you do to progress RBT?

    The best thing you can do to progress RBT is to reach out to your elected representatives to remind them of the importance of this reform to you and your family and to ask for their support. Personal stories are the most effective. Include as much detail as you feel comfortable sharing. Call, write or send electronic messages to your House member and Senators. All outreach to those counting on your electoral support is helpful. If you get an interesting response that you think would be useful for us to know about in progressing our work, please send it through to us. We will follow up with your member.
