Most overseas Americans are (all too) familiar with the manner by which they are penalized by the U.S. tax system, for no reason other than living outside the United States.
They might be less familiar with how they are excluded from many of the benefits offered by the U.S. tax system, again for no reason other than living outside the United States.
In this podcast seat co-founders John RIchardson, Karen Alpert and Laura Snyder discuss some of the benefits in question.
Their conversation also turns to the only real solution: a pure residence-based system for ALL Americans – a system that leaves no American behind.

Being “penalized” is deliberate. Congress knows exactly what the issues are and have every intention of squeezing Americans abroad. Americans abroad have no standing and have been wrongly maligned as free riders.
Tyranny is the objective.
Fighting back is not option but a necessity.
Oh yeah, letter writing is not going to cut it.
I see this accusation time and time again, it comes from brainwashed and ignorant fools that genuinely think citizenship is a taxable benefit and a situation not helped by US exceptionalism because US citizenship is soooo special.
Beats the hell out of me how a full-time resident of France can be freeloading from the USA but if it was true, then it’s largely true of all French residents.
Oh wait, don’t give the US government ideas, though to be fair they already have the thin end of the wedge in place when it comes to taxing the world.
