Organizations Band Together to Advocate for Residency Taxation

'The Residence-Based Taxation Coalition (RBT Coalition) was announced January 27. The group is made up of the Association of Americans Resident Overseas, American Citizens Abroad (ACA), Americans Overseas, Bright!Tax, Dunhill Financial, the National Taxpayers Union, the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce, and White Lighthouse Investment Management. The group hopes its membership will grow as it works to draw congressional focus to the need for residence-based taxation, according to the announcement.'

“ACA Executive Director Marylouise Serrato said the purpose of the coalition is to show the broad appeal of residence-based taxation across various groups.'

‘The RBT Coalition will not posit any specific tax reform platforms or proposals but will provide those responsible for tax reform with the data, information, background, and details as to why residence-based taxation should be enacted,’ the coalition’s release states.
