The Tax Fairness for Americans Abroad Act (H.R. 7358) was introduced by Rep. George Holding (Republican-North Carolina) last December. It changes existing citizenship-based taxation rules, in US tax law, to residency-based taxation (RBT), like that in the laws of almost all other countries. This approach has attracted bipartisan support.

Matt Stross, Tax Counsel, Office of Representative George Holding, will describe -- 

  • the provisions of TFAA,

  • where it stands, and

  • what’s next. 

He will answer questions, as time permits.

Matt Stross is highly familiar with this proposal.  Others at House Ways and Means Committee, Joint Committee on Taxation and House Legislative Counsel's Office also have provided valuable assistance.  

Other presenters will comment on:

  • what this proposal means for attorneys and return preparers,

  • what it means for people out of compliance who may wish to “catch up”, and

  • what it means for investors and investment advisors.

Other presenters are Charles Bruce (Legal Counsel-ACA); Craig Thompson (Independent Tax Consultant, Zurich); Jonathan Lachowitz (Chairman-ACA; Founder-White Lighthouse Investment).

Due to limited availability of seats, early registration is strongly recommended. Please consider online participation.
