Another Step Towards American Empire, Run by the IRS...

FATCA is a crazy law that the United States Congress has decided to impose on the entire world. It comes into force in 2014. Basically we’re building a worldwide empire subject to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

American Citizens Abroad (ACA) on the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act 4 minute interview. Alert for Americans residing overseas: New U.S. tax law seriously impacts you lives through rules related to transmission of citizenship to children born overseas, through specific penalizing measures related to Social Security payments... through its unique citizenship-based taxation whereby the United States continues to impose its tax regime on Americans living outside of the U.S., even though they pay taxes where they reside.
