    DA Tax Team back in DC next week - Time to Call Congress!

    The DA Tax Team is back in Washington DC next week for meetings on Capitol Hill - our fifth and probably final Congressional Door Knock of 2019. We appreciate the members of the Taxation Task Force and thank them for the hard work to support tax reform for Americans abroad. A Special thanks to the chair of the Taskforce, Carmelan Polce, for her remarkable support in driving this important issue forward!

    We also want to thank all Democrats Abroad leaders who have supported the work of the Tax Task Force this year. Their help in pushing out Tax Team reports, updates and campaign guides is greatly valued and essential to our success in engaging Congress to enact the reforms so urgently needed by Americans abroad.

    We are delighted to see that many of our Residency Based Taxation (RBT) activists are getting responses from the members of Congress they are contacting. The responses are more than generic replies referencing taxation in the broadest sense. The responses indicate the problems and concerns of Americans abroad - bank lockouts, tax pressure on small businesses abroad and the cost and complexity of tax compliance - resonate. That's great news and a testament to the hard work of tax reform campaigners in all of our chapters and committees.

    Democrats Abroad asks all members once again to support a DA grassroots Congressional outreach campaign happening in tandem with next week's meetings. PLEASE SHARE WITH ALL AMERICANS ABROAD THIS GUIDE FOR CALLING AND WRITING TO CONGRESS ABOUT TAX REFORM FOR AMERICANS ABROAD.

    Please also this posting on the taxation taskforce blog about next week's meetings on your social media platforms.
