The United States operates citizenship-based taxation, which can have serious consequences for Americans living abroad. Tell us how you are affected and what advice you have for fellow Americans in Denmark.


You might have lived outside the US for years, even decades, but that doesn't mean that you escape the clutches of the IRS.

Citizenship-based taxation, coupled with the FATCA money laundering legislation, can have a serious impact on Americans in Denmark, affecting everything from completing tax declarations, the type of investments you can make and even how easy it is to open a bank account.

The Local would like to hear from American readers in Denmark about their experiences with citizenship-based taxation and FATCA and what - if any - problems it creates for you. Plus we'd like to get your advice for other Americans.
