We Gotta Get Out of This Place: A Candid Confidential Report on the Pros and Cons of Expatriation

Tax Briefings 2014, Sullivan & Worcester Conference Center, Boston, MA
April 30, 2014

People vote in many ways in a democracy, but the most telling way they vote is with their feet: When people decide to surrender citizenship and emigrate, it is a pretty strong suggestion that the grass is perceived to be a WHOLE LOT greener on the other side of the hill. This third program in our Tax Briefings 2014 series featured S&W attorneys Joseph B. Darby III and Anne N. Ross. They presented a confidential briefing on the disturbing increase in expatriations from the United States, and a realistic appraisal of the pros and cons of surrendering U.S. citizenship– and with it the right and obligation to pay some of the highest tax rates imposed in the developed world today.
