Relinquishing US Citizenship

The majority of our guide to relinquishing US citizenship has been extracted from an online publication “American Expatriate Guide: How to Divorce the U.S Government,” which was written by an anonymous US citizen. In the following sections, you will find up-to-date information about giving up your US passport in favor of starting a permanent life abroad. The pages include the following information:

  • Details of “exit tax”, what it is and how you can calculate what you owe.
  • A detailed roadmap of the process with step-by-step instructions concerning how the paperwork you need to complete and the meetings you need to attend.
  • Details of common misconceptions regarding renunciation.
  • FAQ regarding the renunciation process and what it really means.

For further details of the process please refer to the article HERE.
