How to renounce U.S. citizenship – The Reununciation Guide

Renounce U.S. Citizenship

U.S. will soon have a “free pass” to collect data & spy on its Citizen’s bank accts anywhere in the world

Many U.S. citizens abroad are considering renouncing their U.S. citizenship. The reasons are outlined in the media, the above video, Twitter handles, and blogs including: The Isaac Brock Society, Renounce U.S. Citizenship, Maple Sandbox and more.

American Citizens Abroad is a wonderful source of information for U.S. citizens abroad. To put it simply: Relinquishing U.S. citizenship, whether by renunciation or through another act of relinquishment is becoming a necessity for survival.

RenunciationGuide.Com – The Attack on U.S. Citizens Abroad

The attack on Americans Abroad began shortly after Barack Obama became President. The current U.S. government through a variety of laws and procedures presumes that U.S. citizens abroad are “tax cheats” and treats them accordingly. As a result,  many Americans Abroad recognize that they must either move to the United States or renounce their citizenship.

RenunciationGuide.com – The Historical Origins of the site

Interestingly, a site – renunciationguide.com – provided basic information about the “nuts and bolts” of renouncing U.S. citizenship. The site was generous and allowed for anyone to use the content. In February of 2013, renunciationguide.com ceased to exist.

The site has been reactivated in the hopes that it will continue to be a source of information, comfort and advice for Americans Abroad.

RenunciationGuide.com – Moving Forward

The law and circumstances of renunciation are evolving. I invite readers through their comments to add to and update this valuable resource.

As the above video makes clear, the start of “FATCA Hunt” will force many U.S. Citizens Abroad to play the “Expatriation Games”!

  1. Panicked in UK

    A newby to the Isaac Brock website: after living in the UK for nearly 50 years I’ve been FATCA’d, and have contacted a UK/US tax expert. Am considering renouncing, but just read about relinquishing: I took UK citizenship in 2010, i.e. an oath to Her Majesty – does this count? Do I still have to pay/file? Surely I’m still a citizen, just one without a passport and will still be FATCA’d?
