Expatsradio brings you its first programming for US citizens abroad. In this interview Marylouise Serrato, The Executive Director of ACA, talks to Expatsradio's new Swiss correspondent, Bob Zanotti, about the taxation problems of US citizens living overseas. She provides insight into the reasons why the US government taxes its citizens on worldwide income and why this, and other tax polices, are BAD for America. ACA and others would like to see a residency based taxation approach and the benefits this has for America.
ACA Mission Statement
American Citizens Abroad (ACA), the voice of Americans overseas, is a non-profit, non-partisan, all-volunteer organization that represents the interests of Americans living and working outside the U.S. to the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government, the U.S. Congress, and the U.S. Federal Judiciary to insure that Americans overseas are treated with equality and fairness.
ACA is dedicated to:
Representing overseas American's interests, disseminating information on key issues to Americans overseas and supporting the role of U.S. citizens as informal representatives of the United States
Why is ACA is needed?
Unlike some other countries, the United States government does not have any formalized, supportive relationship with its citizens living abroad. Americans living overseas have no direct representation in Congress. No effective mechanism is in place to bring to the attention of Congress the issues affecting the daily lives of Americans overseas. Americans living overseas are affected negatively by a variety of US laws and regulations, yet no governmental agency is responsible for informing Americans abroad of legislative and regulatory developments affecting them ACA aims to fill this void.
