    You don't.
    You OWN some of mine...I pay taxs...I "EARN" my money here and I give some of it here....can you grasp that ? Now he can leave, I have no problem with that...but id make him leave the portion he should be leaving here...and just slam the door after it hits him in the ass.
    Somehow you think its just perfect for ALL AMERICANS to make this little pos Super rich and its just perfect for him to take it "ALL" to china...and then allow him to just come back whenever he wants and enjoy what OTHER americans pay for....yeah right...your the one with the distorted thinking

    Should states do this as well?
    Should New York, Alabama, etc. be able to bar people from entering their state and impose high taxes on those who want to change residency?
    Many states such as New York do impose a non residency tax for those who earn income within the state and reside in another state.

    If he still owes taxes he should be made to pay it. But I don't think people who renounce their citizenship should be forbidden from reentering the US. He should have to apply for a travel visa just like everyone else.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has a status update for Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin: Stop attempting to dodge your taxes by renouncing your U.S. citizenship or never come to back to the U.S. again.
    In September 2011, Saverin relinquished his U.S. citizenship before the company announced its planned initial public offering of stock, which will debut this week. The move was likely a financial one, as he owns an estimated 4 percent of Facebook and stands to make $4 billion when the company goes public. Saverin would reap the benefit of tax savings by becoming a permanent resident of Singapore, which levies no capital gains taxes.

    The bad news? He is unamerican.

    The good news? We can deport his unpatriotic ass now. I want to see his papers, and he had better damn well have a green card among them. Otherwise he is an illegal alien.

    Mycroft, im going to make one more attempt at trying to make you understand this...

    I pay taxs on what I make here in the United States...so does everyone else with an income...This facebook kid MIGRATED to the united states and WE gave him citizenship. We created the environement that ALLOWED him to make billions. Now when it comes time for him to pay a percentage of what he MADE OFF HIS FELLOW AMERICANS..just like all americans do...he says FU USA...and denounces his citizenship and wants to be a chinese citizen. To avoid paying his fair share of taxs on the money WE ALLOWED HIM TO BE ABLE TO EARN....now if you cant understand that no one is trying to steal from this scummer...that we just want him to do what ALL OF US DO...

    Wow, that's horrible.

    I suppose that's part of why more people are leaving the state.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
