Taxation of Americans Abroad: Legislative Changes Brewing in Congress


With this event, American Citizen Abroad Global Foundation (ACAGF) continues its series of Webcasts on the recently introduced legislation, The Tax Fairness for Americans Abroad Act (H.R.7358) (TFAA).

TFAA was introduced in December 2018 by Representative George Holding (R-NC). The bill changes existing citizenship-based taxation rules (CBT), in US tax law, to residency-based taxation (RBT). RBT is sometimes referred to as territorial taxation.

The ACAGF Webcasts serve to provide more information on the bill to the community and other interested parties. In attendance will be Matt Stross, Tax Counsel, Office of Representative George Holding. 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. Mr. Stross will describe -- 

  • the provisions of TFAA,

  • where it stands, and

  • what’s next.

Mr. Stross will answer questions, as time permits.

The presenters are: Max Reed, tax lawyer - SKL Tax, Benita Loughlin, Partner, KPMG, Vancouver, and Terry Ritchie, cross-border financial planner, Cardinal Point Wealth Management. They will discuss how this potential change in US law will affect individual filing requirements and investment strategies. Joining them will be Marylouise Serrato - ACA Executive Director, and Charles Bruce - ACAGF Chairman and ACA Legal Counsel.

11:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time
2:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
7:00 PM British Summer Time (UK)
8:00 PM Central European Summer Time
