Yes, please do! I completely support this initiative.

No wonder that the motto of Americans abroad is:

Renounce and Rejoice!

    I am a US citizen and have lived in Canada since 1992; I became a Canadian citizen in the late 1990’s. My income and assets fall below the limits for any taxation in the US, and will, always. In fact the US took away half my Social Security benefits due to the fact I also paid into Canada Pension–even though in its letter explaining this policy it assures one it will not subtract that amount. I appealed this decision in 2013 and received a letter saying my appeal was not really an appeal. So then I turned the form in again, explaining that their deduction of benefits did not seem fair, as if I had come to Canada and partnered with a rich person, or had illegally grown marijuana (not having to do honest work for a living) then they would be giving me my full SS. I have not heard back in over a year.

    As I am a senior and cannot see myself in my future old age sitting for hours and days trying to figure out and fill out the US tax forms, I really resent having to do this when I fall below the requirements for owing any taxes in the US. I looked into relinquishing US citizenship, but in my case it sounds like a lot of trouble. I do have my US Medicare hospital card, my lifetime pass for National parks and Monuments, and I go across the border to visit family and friends. My resent- ment is strong, as the US is the only country in the world which double-taxes citizens. The ones they are really after are the rich, and huge corporations–so why bother us other individuals? We have no representation, other than the President, it seems–and that certainly is not helping. There are others here who are not filing in the US–taking that chance.
