“. . . the United States charges income taxes on its citizens and residents on a worldwide basis, regardless of where they live. And that is just not the way that most of the world taxes its citizens. And so you could have an American that moves abroad, and they might have to now pay income tax in their new home country and report worldwide income. But at the same time then, they also have to report worldwide income back to the United States. And so this marriage of the tax systems can make for very, very complex planning issues that have to be addressed.”
