Born in the USA? Those who relinquished US citizenship under INA 349(a) are NOT eligible to vote in the November 3, 2020 US election

Born in the USA? Those who relinquished US citizenship under INA 349(a) are NOT eligible to vote in the November 3, 2020 US election

September 30, 2020

September 30, 2020 - Participants include:

 

John Richardson - @Expatriationlaw

 

Keith Redmond - @Keith__Redmond

 

The basic scenario is as follows:

 

A US citizen moved to Canada. He/she then naturalized as a Canadian citizen with the intention of relinquishing US citizenship. At that moment (without specifically notifying the State Department) that person ceased to be a US citizen for nationality purposes. (Note that the definition of citizen for tax residency changed after June 3, 2004. But, this podcast is restricted to citizenship for purposes of nationality only.)

Therefore, if you are told that the fact of a US birthplace means that you are a US citizen and can vote in the election, caution is warranted.

September 16, 2020 - Participants include:

 

Anthony Scaramucci - "The Mooch" - @Scaramucci

John Richardson - @Expatriationlaw

Dr. Karen Alpert - @FixTheTaxTreaty

Mark Fitzpatrick - Switzerland

 

Dr. Alpert and Mr. Fitzpatrick discuss why they renounced their US citizenship.

The simple #FATCA of the matter is that in 2010 the Obama administration unleashed a series of laws (FATCA) and regulations/executive agreements (FATCA IGAs) that have made the lives of Americans abroad a living hell.

Many of those  who wish to live a financially responsible life are being forced to renounce their US citizenship.

The 2020 election is an excellent opportunity for the politicians and political parties to acknowledge these issues.

This podcast continues a discussion that began with Anthony Scaramucci on the first Scaramucci podcast which took place on June 3. 2020.

In an election season, the parties want the vote of Americans abroad. But they don’t care that they don’t care about the issues that impact Americans abroad

Some political parties are making an unprecedented effort to win the vote of Americans abroad. But, when it comes to understanding how US laws are destroying the lives of those same Americans abroad, it's not that they don't care.

It's that they don't care that they don't care!
