The ACA Tax Return Preparer Directory
Washington is pushing ahead with tax reform and they want to hear from you
What American Citizens Abroad, Inc. (ACA) heard in meetings it held with the legislature in February 2015 is now a reality. Washington is working on tax reform. The most recent news on tax reform is the announcement by the Senate Finance Committee that it has created five working groups for tax reform that are ready to accept input and suggestions from groups and individuals. ACA will formally submit its Residence-based taxation (RBT) proposal to the Committee but individuals also have the opportunity to be heard directly.
The most important way to influence Washington is to submit your individual thoughts on tax reform. Congress is sensitive to public opinion and reception of multiple submissions on the taxation of Americans abroad will impact their reform efforts. Form letters and templates may seem an easy way to communicate with Washington but these offices want to know they are hearing from individuals with specific, personal issues and suggestions. Take a few minutes and submit your own personal message.
ACA suggests that you highlight the specific difficulties you face with the current Citizenship-based taxation policy. You may want to highlight issues such as cost and time involved for compliance聽including tax preparer, complexity of filing and uncertainty on how to file, instances of double taxation, penalization caused by US taxation of foreign pension funds, foreign exchange risk and fiscal burden related to filing taxes with the US dollar as the functional currency when income and expenses are in another currency, difficulties with access to foreign banking due to FATCA.
Provide Washington with your ideas of tax reform and if Residence-based taxation (RBT) is one of them you can reference ACA proposal found here: rbt-and-tax-reform-feb-2015-final.pdf
ACA encourages individuals to submit their comments on tax reform to both the Individual Income tax working group at: and, the International Tax working group at:
ACA recommends that you keep you submissions to a minimum - one page, not longer than two. The submissions must be filed by April 15th 2015. Requirements for submission can be found here:

Thomas Jefferson Award

New IRS Streamlined Procedure adopts ACA's Suggestions and Recommendations
The IRS has listened to ACA, the Taxpayer Advocate and tax professionals and included our suggestions and recommendations in their new Streamlined Foreign Offshore Procedures program (SFOP). 聽The program emphasizes simplicity over complexity and allows individuals to come into compliance without being subject to typical tax penalties (failure-to-file, failure-to-pay, accuracy-related, etc.). 聽This is a great step forward and shows that the IRS is aware that the community of Americans overseas are not criminal tax evaders. 聽This is in great part due to ACA鈥檚 efforts in Washington, DC,聽the聽Voice of Americans Overseas working to bring about positive change for Americans overseas. 聽See the link to our June 23, 2014, press release here . 聽
