The U.S. now has the ability to not only take away your passport but also to refuse to issue you a new one if you owe the IRS over $50,000. They are following in the footsteps of other Western countries like Australia. People who believe hide-and-seek is the way to go when it comes to their tax plan will soon be finding out that it’s going to be harder and harder to do. The reality is, the government will find you, eventually, and as more information sharing plans get put into place, it will be nearly impossible to get away with being shady. Also, don’t miss it! Andrew has a big announcement to make towards the end.
