International complaint lodged against US citizenship taxation
Further to my prior post, the ADCS press release also mentions that a group of individuals has filed a complaint with the United Nations, to protest the U.S. practice of citizenship taxation. It's about time that happened. The UN sanctioned Eritrea in 2011, for extracting a comparatively tiny amount of tax on its disapora. It did so apparently at the behest of the United States. Yet three years later the whole world is engaged in the process of perfecting citizenship taxation for the US, with no discussion whatsoever, at any official level. You can get a little info abut the UN complaint here but the complaint itself has not yet been made public. As soon as it is, I will post it.
