U.S. Citizen Abroad (@USCitizenAbroad) January 29, 2013
The real story (assuming it is true) is NOT becoming a citizen of Switzerland. The real story is the renunciation of U.S. citizenship. Switzerland does NOT require her to renounce U.S. citizenship to become a citizen of Switzerland. Furthermore, becoming a citizen of Switzerland does NOT mean that she loses her U.S. citizenship. Hence, it is clear that she is voluntarily relinquishing her U.S. citizenship. Chances are she will pay (or has already paid) a good deal of money in the form the Exit Tax to do this. To put it simply:
Tina Turner is paying money to get rid of her U.S. citizenship!
It’s gotten to the point where people are buying their way to freedom from the U.S.
It will be interesting to see how the “Homelander Elite Corp” spin this story.
She’s simply the best!
