Petition to end Citizen-Based-Taxation
Please repeal Citizen-Based-Taxation for US persons living and working abroad. Congress has initiated territorial taxation (in TCJA) for Corporations abroad; however, they did not do the same for individuals. This forces average-income Americans into two complex, non-compatible tax systems and is forcing Americans abroad to renounce their citizenship.
Why is this important?
The United States is the only country besides Eritrea that unjustifiably imposes two tax systems on its citizens abroad. This taxation hurts the US economy by making US citizens noncompetitive, increases cost of IRS collection, hurts our exports, and causes discrimination of Americans overseas.
