Help! I’m on the IRS hit list

Help! I’m on the IRS hit list, article.
The Americans have an unusual view of citizenship. Once an American, always an American, even if you left the U.S. the day you were born. The U.S. is the only country that requires its citizens to file a tax return and report their worldwide income, no matter where they live and what other citizenship they hold.

Not "Americans", but the US government. There is a HUGE difference.

And of course people who are inclined to think theft is OK if you call it "taxation" are going to find some way to expand their reach so that you can keep getting milked no matter where you live.
