I will let you tell me. Is this article in Tax Connection “relevant to folks” or is it “fear mongering?”
Please read both the article and the comments and tell me what you think. The reason I ask is Brian Mahany sent me a direct e-mail after reading my comments. His subject line was Fear Mongering? The message was
I try to post articles that are relevant to folks, not engage in fear mongering. Don’t shoot the messenger; we are not advocates of FATCA.Comments are appreciated. If you wish to write something for TaxConnections I am sure readers would find it interesting and I am sure the publisher, Kat Jennings, would post it for you.Brian
If you’re not doing fear mongering, why don’t you inform Canadians about the fact CRA does not and will not collect for IRS. Why don’t you tell them IRS has no jurisdiction in Canadian courts for tax collection? Why don’t you tell them IRS cannot prosecute in Canadian courts Why don’t you tell them many of them can get backdated CLNs with no further obligation to IRS?I asked you a couple of those questions after you posted at Maple Sandbox–where we do not usually allow advertising. You did not respond.
Lynne-Thank you for your reply. I don’t write about these things because I am not a Canadian lawyer and have no idea whether they are true. As I suggested, write something from the Canadian perspective.Regarding Maple Sandbox, I am not a subscriber so I don’t see comments.Brian
