Principled US expat stands up to IRS international compliance regime
by: Anthony Parent
Many people who have some sort of IRS problem, whether domestic or international, deal with it in a predictable way. They ignore it. They ignore it until they can't anymore. Now with an understaffed IRS, the chances are that someone can ignore problems longer than ever before, but one must wonder if the IRS is just giving taxpayer more rope by which to hang themselves. For those who want to take control, they see no other way than to deal head-on with a problem, regardless of the consequences. One such person is Ryan Socash, one of our clients and a well-known media personality in Europe, and he explains why he felt he had no choice but to comply with the law, but then why he took the added steps of working to reform the law.
