Between the 2021 tax reporting season that is still underway (most U.S. expats have until June 15 rather than an April deadline to file, of course), and President Biden's just-unveiled so-called "Green Book" of 2023 revenue proposals, there sure is a lot out there to talk about right now...
Luckily for American Expat Financial News Journal readers, we have the dates, times and other details of some of the organizations and people who are, in fact, doing just that – talking, about these and other related subjects (see below)...
Thursday, April 21: Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AARO) 'Zoom MeetUp' to focus on how U.S. expats can best make their voices heard in Washington, 5:30pm CEST (4:30pm BST, 11:30 EDT)
Participants in the Zoom event will, a notice on the AARO website says, hear how best to ensure their voices, as U.S. citizens living overseas, are heard, including how to contact their members of Congress, how to express their concerns, and why they should urge their elected representatives to join the Americans Abroad Caucus, a group of around 30 U.S. lawmakers who acknowledge the need for the expat citizen's voice to be better heard in Washington.
Speakers during the meeting will include Fred Einbinder, Chair of AARO's Advocacy Committee, and Kathleen de Carbuccia, former president and chair of AARO's Citizenship Committee.

Wednesday, April 27: Live (ie., not a webinar) Expat Tax 101 event in London, 6:30pm – 9pm BST, Lecture Theatre 2, University College London's Cruciform Building, Gower Street; US$15 (US$7 concession), sponsored by Democrats Abroad UK
This "in-person" event will address "the basics of U.S. tax filing requirements for Americans living in the UK", who, as of the day it takes place, will still have more than a month remaining to submit their 2021 tax returns. According to Democrats Abroad UK, the aim of the event will be to educate participants on their basic tax-filing obligations, while addressing such commonly-asked tax questions as when to file, how to file, and how to avoid double taxation; taxes on buying/selling a home in the UK; retirement, and so on.
A panel discussion featuring such tax experts as Migle Kuzmaite of MyExpatTaxes; David Treitel of American Tax Returns; Liz Zitzow of British American Tax; and an as-yet-unnamed tax specialist from Bright!Tax will be included as part of the event, which will end with a networking session.
"The event will not be live-streamed, but those unable to attend [will be able to] buy the recording," DAUK said.
No food or drink will be served, and the event is closed to the press. More information and registration details may be found by clicking here.
