Offshore? I am not sure why I pay taxes in the USA, if I went offshore, if I became a citizen of Canada, taxes would pay for universal healthcare system.
Hmm, I am age 56, I wonder if I can become a citizen of Norway, Denmark, or Sweden. Yes, I would pay 40-50 percent in taxes, but I would know I am safe, I could afford my health care.
Obama used words like "Universal Healthcare System," this is available offshore for free, it should be the big benefit paying Uncle Sam, but instead I get the worlds biggest war machine.
I Filed a Tax Extension.
Why am I paying Uncle Same? I could be offshore, preparing my payment i is truly are ridiculously easy, but the accountant still cost me 350 USD. I went to an H and R Block office, they said they would file an extension for free. I asked them how much to file my 2555 Foreign Exclusion thingy that allows me to earn 90 plus thousand if I live outside ( live offshore ) the USA for over 335 days.
H and R Block wants 350 Dollars.
If I pay my professor accountant, CPA, charges the same, and I could avoid this if I lived offshore there is not tax international.
I do not want to stop paying taxes, but after living offshore for 14 years, the USA can make me angry. Obama tells me one thing, that he is setting up Universal Healthcare System, but he seem to be working for the Doctors, he is going to force me to buy health insurance. the same as I am forced to buy liability insurance to drive a car, that is a good idea, but to force me to buy health insurance is not Universal Healthcare System, it is a joke.
I want to pay the USA taxes, and, also do not want worry about whether I can afford to have cancer.
95-98 percent of the reasons I go to a Doctor are minor, and I went to a Doctor offshore recently, it was free in the DR. I went to a Doctor on Lago Atitlan, GUA, and it only cost 4-5 dollars. Living offshore give me the benefit of free medical and I am not even a citizen in these countries, I just go the Doctor, they do not charge their own people, and they give anyone free medical.
I want to pay the USA, I want the United States to survive, prosper, and be the leader of the free world. But Uncle Same is nuts.
Tax Refund is a Bait and Switch
They give you a refund, to make you want to file. I do not get a refund, therefore it only can cost me to file taxes. I am not going to get a refund, but the normal worker pays, and pays again, and suddenly feels great, he or she gets money back, but truly paid and paid all year.
All this can be avoided by me, I can go hide in another country, live offshore, pay my tax international if needed, which is not needed, unless I volunteer to the country and say,
"Hey you, sign me up for taxes."
Now, I would love to be a citizen of Denmark or Sweden, and over 1 million Islamic people agree. If I do not work, they pay me, if I get sick they pay, if I do anything the country pays, I am always safe.
Tax Extensions or I can Live Offshore
Strangely, Americans are so brainwashed into paying governments, when they go to another country to live offshore, the instantly try to learn about the offshore taxes, or the International taxes of they country..... Too Stupid -- I can live in any country for the rest of my life, complete off the grid, only by trying to become a citizen of that country, or resident, or getting a retirement visa do I volunteer to pay tax international.
It is truly possible to go off the tax grid if you live abroad, or go offshore.
Obama is playing games, the USA government is playing games, they are the reason all the multi-national factories are moving to China. We are all loyal Americans, but when the American dream becomes the American tax nightmare, we see offshore as an easy solution. It is natural to do what is easy, and what makes us the most amount of money for the benefits of living.
I see a universal health plan as one of the number one reasons to pay taxes in the USA, and not live offshore. (Schools is big.)
Would Americans file if they did not get a refund?
They do not get a total refund, this refund thing is a carrot, fools gold.
Andy Graham, and American Citizen, and trying to like Uncle SAme, but when the USA is giving me almost no benefits, and only because I love my country, and still see this offshore living as another game it feels tricky. I just want to live, pay taxes, and feel safe that if I get cancer, I have a way to go the Doctor.
