Originally, decades ago, the United States did not recognize dual nationalities. That is why people have not revoked their dual national status in the United States. Was there a warning from our government to victims to revoke dual U.S. citizenship before the document was signed? Perhaps, if informed persons are given permission to retain dual nationality status, knowing that some people would be severely disadvantaged by the agreement they knew would happen? Has a warning been given that the document would cost people some 30% of their homes to pay to a foreign government? That the people of SOME wake up with their private apartments, which own much of the foreign ownership they previously thought they owned? The spouses of these people may have wanted to protect their children`s homeland. It is quite difficult to pay for your home for the safety of your children without having taken it from you and your family and without giving it to someone abroad.

This delay within the IGA allows the Australian government to review the agreement to determine whether the United States is actually providing the data promised in Article 6. To this end, the Australian government should provide additional information on data sent to the IRS in September 2015 and on new data received by the IRS under the FATCA IGA. The DBA also applies to taxpayers from third countries, as the non-discrimination section applies to nationals of Australia or New Zealand. In addition, the mutual agreement procedure, information exchange articles and tax debt collection assistance articles apply when third countries are residents of tax territory that are nationals of Australia or New Zealand.
A lot of effort, Karen, to create this site and show leadership, to organize an effort to make positive changes on behalf of the 100,000 american people who now live in Australia and are trapped in double taxation and many tax traps between the U.S. and Australian systems.
