    Our chat with Marylouise Serrato, Executive Director of ACA, and Charles Bruce, ACA Legal Counsel and ACA Global Foundation’s Chairman, about the recent DEG study and what it means for RBT

    We chat with Marylouise Serrato, Executive Director of American Citizens Abroad (ACA), and Charles Bruce, ACA Legal Counsel and ACA Global Foundation's (ACAGF) Chairman, about District Economics Group's (DEG) recent study completed in support of Residence-Based Taxation (RBT). We discuss how the research helps advocacy for RBT; why revenue neutrality is important; why ACA Global Foundation worked with DEG on this study; the response from Capitol Hill, US Treasury, and the IRS to the research; and much more! 
     
    Given the importance of this study, and the current Congressional interest in it, we are sharing this on our ACA Podcast. This research, funded by ACAGF, is critical to ACA's advocacy work on RBT. ACA has already presented the study to offices on Capitol Hill and is setting up more and more meetings with key Congressional offices and the tax writing committees.

Useful & Practical

Surprised to be the first review! I think that in the current, rather abstract pool of podcasts... this is a very practical resource for Americans Abroad. Thank you for making this and please don’t stop! I think it would also be great to include some younger entrepreneurial influencers here something a little sexy, spicier. Just a thought.
