Bills to support Americans living overseas introduced

On 17 September 2019, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, Americans Abroad Caucus Co-Chair, introduced two pieces of legislation (Link). The two bills, Commission on Americans Living Overseas Act of 2019 (Link) and the Overseas Americans Financial Access Act (Link), would offer relief, including an important relief from the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) for Americans living overseas according to the Congresswoman.

In response to the bills, on 18 September 2019, L’Association des Américains Accidentels (“AAA”) (Link) submitted a letter to Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney welcoming her approach to introduce the two pieces of legislation but also pointing out, that the bills do not mention consequences of the American tax laws for “accidental Americans” who are most affected. The full letter is available on Twitter (Link).
