Your chance to say what you think about the U.S. expat tax regime – but time running out, as Dems Abroad survey deadline nears

The deadline is approaching for U.S. citizens living abroad to participate in a major Democrats Abroad survey, aimed at revealing exactly what such expats think about the way the U.S. taxes them. 

Rebecca Lammers, chair of the Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force, said fresh data about expat American views on taxation and related issues was needed because "things have changed significantly in the last few years for Americans abroad, especially with the impact of the pandemic.

"We need updated research to share with Congress to raise awareness of the tax and financial access problems faced by Americans abroad.”

In a statement announcing the survey, the Dems Abroad said that the data it collects will be used to help shape its advocacy priorities, along with its "Congressional and grassroots outreach strategy."

In particular, it said it was hoped that the data could be used "to compel Congress to take urgent action to pass legislation that provides tax and financial access relief for Americans abroad."

Those interested in participating in the survey have until April 30 to do so. 

This is the first major survey about expat attitudes towards tax issues that the Democrats Abroad has carried out since 2019, when it managed to collect nearly 10,000 responses.
