Residence-Based Taxation Proposed For Americans Abroad

While the CBT - Citizenship based taxation - is certainly and completely inappropriate for citizens who are not residing in U.S. as resident on permanent basis or longer time - say 183 days or more - during a year - it is selfish for ACA members who are long term resident overseas to suggest certain provision which only benefits them. The fact that CBT is inappropriate, unjust and unique, RBT, sort of U.K., Canada and all other countries should be the answer. All those who are suggesting any simplification or changes in U.S. tax law should think, consider and suggest something worthwhile in overall good of all taxpayers and the nation as a whole, not in selfish way for some groups. Because then it is no diff than business as usual which politicians and lobbyist practice everyday for vested interest only.

Residence-Based Taxation Proposed For Americans Abroad

The US must move to a Residence Based Taxation system consistent with nations such as the UK, Canada and Australia. The Exit Tax should apply ONLY to US based appreciated assets/investments NOT to overseas investments.

US Congress Examines Tax Fraud Problems

The scammers have been targeting taxpayers during tax season. With the deadline approaching, get an extension instead than fall of with the deadline and panic. Use online services like FileLater to get a confirmation that the IRS received your extension. With that being said, you are assured that you are dealing with authorized e-file providers.

Finland To Support African International Tax Reforms

Italy Amends Country 'Black Lists'

Frankly confusing.For example Jersey has an adequate TIEA in effect,ratified by Italy 2012 and 2014 but for purpose of Voluntary disclosure is penalised effective for fiscal periods after 2003 whereas the Vatican deal is effective for fiscal periods after January 2009.Could your correspondent verify all of the Ministry statement? Otherwise one assumes that "certain individuals and entities"are being unfairly privileged.Perhaps Mr.Noseda could clarify or comment on this situation.Regards.Frank Woods

Proposed US Airport Passenger Tax Hike Causes Concern

Has A4A’s touting of century-old cabotage shipping regulations
come to contain a cargo of tea [party]? I find it difficult to comprehend this knee-jerk “tax” objection to critically needed infrastructure maintenance and improvements.
Honestly, would the carriers prefer to have the PFC collected separately and in cash at a station just in front of their check-in counter? If carriers were not so intent on obfuscating fees and charges when pricing the transaction online, would there not be an excellent opportunity to partner with airports to illustrate and herald
the individual projected benefits of airport infrastructure plans. I certainly would not balk even one second at $3 of $6 if I clearly saw it benefiting a runway or terminal project at my destination or the very airport I most frequently use at home. It goes without saying that it is a much easier pill to swallow than many of the carrier imposed ancillary fees but then, that would be the reason for not illustrating it – it is but a fraction of what is charged for my accompanying bag.

US Internet Sales Tax Bill Reintroduced In Congress

Interesting thought U.S Legislator are contemplating to impose Sales tax.

Indian Govt. in some States have introduced amendments to levy VAT on e-tailers in the state where Orders are delivered. Thax

Libertarian Party Challenges Rubio's US Tax Reform Plan

Brazil's Manaus FTZ Seeks Stronger EU Ties

I presume you are referring to the Zona Franca de Manaus, the correct translation of which is the Free Trade Zone of Manaus - or possibly the Manaus Free Trade Zone. It is most certainly not The Manaus Free Zone, which makes it sound like it is free of Manaus. Or perhaps there is a "Washington Free Zone" somewhere near the author?

Cyberonics Merges With Sorin, Domiciles In UK

When will the Obama Administration and the Republican controlled Congress agree to pass comprehensive tax reform and move the US to the world standard of Residence Based Taxation? Inversions by corporations and renouncing US citzenship by overseas Americans are the direct result of the US insistance on maintaining citizenship based taxation. This is an urgent issue that must be addressed.

Or perhaps he can see if he can start a business with Ben Bernanke who is equally inept at business and economics.

UK Proposals Target 'Serial Tax Avoiders'

It is truly amazing how politicians of any ilk blame "loopholes" as the problem in tax avoidance. Who made the laws that created the "loopholes" in the first place? The politicians. They will never understand, nor admit, that the private sector will always be smarter than they are. Tax evasion is of course unacceptable from all perspectives, but "tax avoidance" is perfectly satisfactory with the letter of the law. The government should stop confusing tax avoidance with tax evasion with their inappropriate press releases in order to try and brainwash the public.

US Congress Gets Bill To Curb IRS Civil Asset Forfeitures

Canadian Firms Welcome Red Tape Cuts

The CRIMINAL NEGLIGENCE that the CRA and DOJ have created will draw much attention in next election. These two ANTI- DEMOCRATIC agencies need to be abolished for the nefarious rules brought into this country. The two major areas are TAX and LAW. When Canadians are taxed at 70% (three govt. levels) incl. gas, hydro (taxes) its time to put LIMITS on govt. and when DOJ lawyers instigate ABROGATION of our Charter Rights it is time to make it an ELECTION issue. Refer to the DOOKHAN case in Boston to understand that the US system put B'rats and lawyers in jail for FRAUD or false incrimination!

Canadian Province Alberta May Introduce PST

Income Tax was a WARTIME measure. is it gone? no, are we at war? no. if PST comes it wont go. Heres an idea, drug dealers dont pay tax in alberta except gst @ 5%. how about you REMOVE income tax and INCREASE GST to tax people on what they buy not what they work hard to earn. Then the DRUG DEALERS get taxed too.
another thing, usa states have massive revenues from taxation or maijuana. legalize it.

Italy Introduces Patent Box

I'd love it if you could add more explanation about the 5th paragraph, as follows

"The income on which the tax exemption is applied is to be calculated proportionally to the R&D activities actually performed by a taxpayer, while it has also been foreseen that, where the assets are used within a business or in a related business, there will also need to be a system of rulings by the Italian Revenue Agency to ascertain the relevant applicable income. "

Here could you elaborate more on what is foreseen? I can't really understand what this means. I'd very much appreciate it if you could reply. Thank you.

Court Ruling Allows HMRC To Be Sued For Negligence

I am just sick of hearing about the amount of people who have been douped into having tax credits, then hit with a bill for overpayment having to pay monies back straight away and then bailiff charges.
