SEAT survey finds expats suffering from impact of U.S. 'extraterritorial taxation'

Americans resident outside of the U.S. say they are having to "refrain from making certain investments" owing to the "penalizing" U.S. tax it would incur; missing out on overseas business and employment opportunities because of their U.S. tax obligations; and suffering from tax-induced "personal stress" as a result of the way their home country continues to tax them, even though they live abroad, according to some of the just-released findings of a major survey carried out towards the end of last year by SEAT, a Paris-based advocacy organization.

Last Thursday (March 25), the U.S. Senate Finance Committee held a hearing on “How U.S. International Tax Policy Impacts American Workers, Jobs, and Investment."

We, at Stop Extraterritorial American Taxation, believe the hearing revealed a concerning lack of awareness on the part of many, if not most, top U.S. lawmakers about how a significant proportion of America's expatriate community actually lives, files U.S. tax returns, and when required, pays taxes to the U.S...
