On July 1, 2014, the US’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) went into effect, and as a result it will become increasingly difficult to renounce US citizenship for the “right reasons” and avoid any negative consequences. All evidence suggests that now may be the time to consider renouncing US citizenship.

However, renouncing US citizenship comes with many complexities. As a result, it is essential to ensure that renunciation is done properly. If not done correctly, an individual may be subject to the US Exit Tax or barred from ever entering the US again under current law.

On February 25, 2015Moodys Gartner Tax Law will be presenting a complimentary seminar on the main topics of interest in consideration of renouncing US citizenship:

  • Pros and cons of renouncing US citizenship
  • Avoiding the US Exit Tax
  • How to avoid becoming barred from the US
  • Consequences to renouncing US citizenship if proposed law ultimately passes

Please register by Friday, February 20, 2015. Subject to capacity.

Note: parking is available on the Stampede Grounds for $15. Alternatively, you can take Calgary Transit to the Victoria Park LRT station.
