A quote from a donor:
“I am a pensioner and do not, in the end, pay any tax to the US government. However, it is a cost to me to have the taxes and FBAR prepared every year by an accountant. This is unacceptable. The US keeps adding insult to injury, first with FATCA and now with the nearly fivefold increase in the cost to renounce US citizenship.
I am sending $25 now and will send more later. At age 70 I will be substitute teaching, not only because I enjoy it, but because financially I need to.
I hope there are those with deeper pockets who will step up to be counted in helping to defray the costs of this lawsuit.
Our present Canadian government should hang its head in shame for allowing itself to be bullied by the US and for turning its back on at least one million US expats living in Canada. We deserve a government that will protect us in every way, including our privacy.” [posted with permission]
