On 11 April 2024 the House Ways & Means Committee held a hearing “Expanding on the Success of the 2017 Tax Relief to Help Hardworking Americans.”

You can view the hearing here.

The purpose of the hearing was, in the words of Committee Chair Jason Smith, “to highlight the benefits of GOP tax reform and discuss the path forward for tax policy ahead of 2025.”

This hearing presents an opportunity for  YOU  to both (1) explain to the Committee the impact of nationality-based U.S. extraterritorial tax policies on the lives of Americans who live outside of the United States, and (2) call for the United States to move to a purely residence-based tax system.

SEAT has submitted a statement to the Committee. You can read it here. We encourage you to provide your own personal statement. Unless Congress hears from actual Americans living overseas, they will certainly continue to ignore the effects of U.S. extraterritorial tax policies on the lives of Americans around the globe. If you don’t know how to get started, you can download our template and edit it to fit your personal situation.

Your submission must be received no later than Thursday 25 April 2024 (by close of business Eastern time) – so don’t delay!
