美国国税局(Internal Revenue Service)的最新报告显示，自2008年以来，放弃美国国籍（或终止永久居留身份）的美国人数量,增加了近九倍。
辛辛那提大学法学院法学教授卡伦(Paul L. Caron)说，人们……特别是富人,越来越担心美国未来的财政方向。
Do U.S. citizens (or permanent residents) to pay a heavy price and that price is the U.S. government on personal income, levy heavy taxes on personal income declared by the U.S. citizen must be included in the income of the foreign. Foreign Regal emigrated to the U.S. each year, to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to declare their income in foreign countries; in foreign countries to pay the personal income tax can be deducted in the United States do not need to repeat to pay.
This matter, in the past, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service is not strict, and now, increasingly stringent.
The latest report shows that of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), the number of Americans since 2008, to give up U.S. citizenship (or termination of permanent residence status), an increase of nearly nine times.
Why the United States Internal Revenue Service, rather than immigration, sensitive to U.S. citizens emigrated up? The most important reason to give up U.S. citizenship or U.S. green card, because of tax avoidance.
The IRS data show that in the first quarter of this year alone, there are 499 Americans emigrated, they may no longer have to pay taxes in the United States a. In contrast, in 2010, quarterly average number of migrants 384.
The number of immigrants in 2010 compared with 2009 and 2008, have grown substantially. 2009, and the average number of migrants in each quarter of 2008 were 186 and 58.
The total U.S. population of 300 million, 499 Americans have moved overseas, just a drop in the ocean only. The trend is almost linear upward trend.
Why is it so?
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service did not say why people have to give up U.S. citizenship? Were not disclosed, they are what people are gone?
The lawyers say, most of the rich, they emigrated to various countries.
One view is that they leave the United States, because the reasons for President Obama and U.S. leaders.
University of Cincinnati School of Law professor, Karen (Paul L. Caron,) said that the people … especially the rich, more and more worried about the future financial direction of the United States.
The incumbent president
The rich, the rich will not worry: after 2012, if Obama won re-election, may be introduced in tax policy; Obama once re-elected, no worries, the final, will face because of his actions, and change have a worse budget problem.
Other lawyers dedicated to helping Americans emigrated to say, because the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to crack down on overseas bank accounts and offshore income. A considerable number of Americans living abroad, they may be – never to own non-US income and non-US account – to the United States is satisfied that tax. Now that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service began implementing provisions, and violators may face criminal penalties, so Americans living overseas, preferring to immigrants, but also do not want to pay taxes.
New York tax lawyer Connors, Peter Connors, said, I think, which became a concern, because offshore reported reported the problem and bankers. To do a U.S. citizen, is a price to pay, in some cases, the cost may not be worth doing a U.S. citizen.
