Here is something you need to see and understand, just so you can comprehend the full cycle of events that will happen to you if you choose to give up your green card or your U.S. citizenship and fully log out of the U.S. tax system.
If you are someone called a “covered expatriate” (basically someone with a net worth above $2 million who is either a citizen of the United States or has had a green card for at least 8 years), you will go through a procedure with the Internal Revenue Service to terminate the ability of the United States government to tax you. You pay an exit tax. At the end of this process, your name will be published.
Here, for your reading enjoyment, is the list published by the IRS for the third quarter of 2009. I’m not going to make this a regular feature of the blog. The point is to show you what you will be temporarily famous when you terminate your U.S. residency or citizenship.
(If you don’t meet the criteria for being a “covered expatriate” you can get out of the U.S. with some paperwork but no tax cost and no publicity. You won’t be on this list.)
The Notice is published after the jump.
