Unintended Consequences of Offshore Compliance

The articles details the most public figure to renounce U.S. Citizenship to date. The combination of the Department of Justice/IRS offshore initiative and FATCA has spurned a lot of “Accidential-Americans,” dual-citizens and expats to renounce their citizenship. This reaction is in direct proportion to the complexity and cost of compliance in addition to the potential criminal liability.

This is an unintended consequence of these laws and should be reviewed by Congress when discussing tax reform. Additionally, folks should be cautioned that an over-reaction to these issues can mean significant, long-term ramifications. When faced with these issues, taxpayers should consult with a Federally Authorized Tax Practitioner familiar with these areas to truly understand the consequences.
