Expatriation & Offshore Disclosure: When a person relinquished their U.S. citizenship or legal permanent resident (“green card”) status, they are considered an expatriate. And, some individuals who give up their U.S. status may be considered a covered expatriate, and subject to an exit tax.

This is especially true when a person is unable to provide 5-years of compliance with U.S. tax and international information reporting forms.

There is a special program for certain former citizens (and soon to be former citizens) who fall below certain threshold requirements.
