We have extensive experience with the U.S. Expatriation Tax. This tax (also called the Exit Tax) can have extreme implications for U.S. nationals who renounce citizenship and for non-citizens who cease to be long-term Green Card holders (lawful permanent residents). Working with your other professional advisors, we will assist in planning for the legitimate avoidance or reduction of the tax. One tax-avoidance vehicle available to affected persons is the Expatriation Trust. The most likely Green Card holders to be caught by this tax are international executives.
