    Neither is Sangha. It would really help if you had any idea what that law was about before posting about it.

    Is there a requirement for the partisan hackery club where you are not allowed to research?

    Fail Again. My question does no such thing.

    Please learn what the law is about.

    And you just proved you aren't willing to answer questions.

    Keep it up, I hope you get banned. You trash up this site.

    Look, I'm the one actually discussing the law in question. You keep attacking ME for pointing out how I understand the law yet you keep making wrong claims on it.

    Jesus Christ. It's **** like this that makes me take breaks from DP.

    Once again, you show you are unwilling to answer questions. Why is that?

    Keep it up, I hope you get banned. You trash up this site.
    I guess understanding the law in question trashes up the site. Knowledge is bad eh?

    Here's the question that J-Mac refuses to answer:

    Do you think that people should be allowed to hide taxable income and assets by putting them in foreign no questions asked banks who refuse to disclose information to the US government while everyone else pays their taxes legitimately?

    Only so long as anyone who is not a U.S. citizen is barred from doing any of that. Once they give up their citizenship, they are no different than any other foreign national.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I sure as hell had to pay while I was expat. Hell they wanted to take withholdings from me. I have to admit I much prefer the, "how the hell to I get out of paying the tax man so much" problems because I made I nice chunk. Much better than being church mouse poor. I think at one time I envied how well off church mice were.

    Class warfare indeed. If the purpose of FATCA were to actually recover lost tax revenue, it would be a disaster (given that it costs more to implement than it will ever recover).

    fair·ness [fair-nis] noun
    1. A net loss incurred in the name of "recovering lost tax revenue" in order to garner votes.
    2. A tactic used to persuade that is characterized by an appeal to envy rather than evidence. He quickly lined his pockets by passing out promises of "fairness" to the dull and naļve.

    I can't remember the exact title but wasn't that 360 day rule enough to cover you? Back then, you had a $50K deduction and we all conveniently made less than that (thats close to $250K inflation adjusted) so I don't know who you worked for. Were you a DA Civilian? You might have had your own set of rules. I worked for contractors and then owned a business in Korea in 1969. My first job there in 1963 paid a glorious $250 a month and I lived pretty well on that. When I got to Vietnam, the pay got much more serious and I had literally no expenses living on base so no US taxes and lots of savings. I paid (ha-ha) Korean taxes, like slipping Mr. Tax a $100 bill.
