Americans living permanently overseas also need to pay U.S. income tax on income above $100,000/year ($190,000 filing jointly).

If American law makes it impossible for me to extract the money without paying punitive taxes (i.e. 70% when you add the European income tax plus the U.S. tax)


As others on the thread have noted....The Foreign Tax Credit. Look it up.

-synchronicity, not in a very tolerant mood today.
