    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.

    March in Solidarity: We the People March

    Join the "Solidarity March"- to MAKE your voice heard and HOLD your politicians and candidates accountable!! Americans will march to demand accountability from our elected officials.

    We the People are marching to be seen and heard. We are marching to remind our elected officials that they work for us. We are marching because the current regime is a threat to our democracy and values. We are marching to demand accountability. Silence and inaction are complicity.


    There's political upheaval and discontent from the U.S. to Hong Kong, the U.K. to Italy. What are your top issues and priorities? Create your own poster at our pre-march brunch/lunch poster-making meetup! Come for coffee, brunch, all-you-can-eat "Pancake Repeat" (a delicious variety of sweet AND savory pancake stacks), "bowls", tacos, toasts!
