Expatriation Tax Compliance
Ready to relinquish your U.S. citizenship or green card? Cendrowski Corporate Advisors can guide you through the expatriation tax compliance process and help ensure a successful transition.
The Expatriation Tax and How It Works
When is someone required to pay expatriation tax? Some individuals become U.S. citizens by default and have never lived in the U.S.; some individuals have settled in other countries and never plan on returning to the U.S.
The decision to give up your U.S. citizenship or green card is never straightforward, and part of the consideration process should be tax obligations. Wealthy individuals must pay an expatriation tax before relinquishing their citizenship or green card, and Cendrowski Corporate Advisors consultants can help you get the details right.
Once the decision is made, complying with your prior tax filing obligations is the first step toward relinquishing your citizenship or green card. Additionally, ensuring that the final required tax returns are correctly submitted ensures a successful expatriation.
Client Success Story: Expatriation to Canada
Cendrowski Corporate Advisors was engaged by a woman who was born in the U.S. and lived here until she was a young adult. She met and fell in love with a Canadian and has been living in Canada for 40 years. Her children and their families are in Canada, and she has no plans of returning to live in the U.S. Her reasons for leaving the U.S. were not motivated by tax avoidance, but she knew she would never desire to live in the U.S. again.
As part of our expatriation tax work for her, we reviewed her previous U.S. tax filings and determined some necessary amendments. We filed the revisions and final returns as part of the expatriation process. Our team’s attention to detail and knowledge of the international disclosure requirements enabled the client to give up her U.S. citizenship successfully.
