CARES Act and Americans Abroad research project - tell us your stimulus story. Take the survey today
This year the Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force has addressed the concerns of thousands of Americans abroad related to the financial aid available to eligible U.S. citizens under the COVID pandemic stimulus bill passed in March. Our experience indicates the resources of the IRS fell far short of serving the needs of eligible Americans abroad. (This fact is particularly vexing today, 15 October, the IRS extension deadline for U.S. tax filing and foreign financial account reporting.)
Today we are launching an Americans Abroad and the CARES Act research project to compile data to describe your experience accessing the aid and make recommendations to the IRS for improving the delivery of the next aid package.
Please take the survey yourself. Please share the survey with other Americans abroad and please post it on your social media platforms. It will be open for submissions from 15 to 31 October 2020. We expect to publish our findings in mid-November.
