We did it! Just as promised by John Richardson our submission to the Senate Finance Committee is signed, sealed and delivered….Remember this? :
I also made it clear that Dr. Kish and I would be taking the initiative to “educate” the Committee about:
– what “citizenship taxation” really is; and
– the true effects that it has on “Americans” (recognizing that many of you do NOT consider yourselves to be U.S. citizens) in Canada and elsewhere.
I am happy to report to you that on February 14, 2015 the videos were made as planned.
I am happy to report that on April 9, 2014 Dr. Kish and I met with representatives of the Senate Finance Committee and had a “productive discussion”.
I am happy to report that, today, April 15, 2015 our submission to the Senate Finance Committee (consisting of a total of 7 separate submissions on various topics) has been delivered. One of the submissions was the text of the “Human Rights complaint to the United Nations“. We acknowledge the tremendous work that went into the creation and submission of the complaint.
We encourage you to look at our complete “Folder of Submissions” as follows:
I want to remind you that this is going to be a “slow process”. Be patient. Keep yourselves focused on the “long term” goal. The key is to remain patient and focused.
For all who submitted comments to be included, please see here.
Thank you so much for all who took the time to send in your letters & comments in support of this project. Please spend time and explore all seven of the submissions as each is a very important component of demonstrating to the US government how perverse and discriminatory U.S. Tax policy is, not only against U.S. Persons, but to every country and person who is connected to one. We need residence-based taxation. We want the ability to make use of our tax-deferred savings vehicles in our countries of choice. We deserve the right to have our bank accounts free from the prying eyes of FinCen. We demand the recognition that we are not tax cheats and traitors. We insist that the privacy rights of our “alien” spouses and children be respected. For those who cannot act on their own behalf, we must have the ability to make choices free of imposed US citizenship be it from immigration or tax status.
It is time. The U.S.must start living up to its claim of being the land of freedom and opportunity. It must address its own areas of human rights violations and act in the best interests of all. We will not be satisfied nor stop until we receive exactly that.

Thank you for posting, Tricia. This is just what I’ve been waiting to have a look at.
Incredible the work you have all put into this. Thank you one and all, especially John Richardson, Stephen Kish and Tricia Moon.
I hope the Senate Finance Committee reads and researches thoroughly of the vast damage being done to *US Persons Abroad* — and then the media, its readers and, especially, our governments in the countries in which we live, work and are contributing members of society. All need to take full note and action to remedy collateral damage of US citizenship taxation!
It is wonderful to finally also have the UN Human Rights Complaint published as part of this submission. Much too long for response from that body, the United Nations, on our Complaint.
I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of all of this. It will take me awhile to get through it. All I can say is, BRAVO Tricia Moon, Stephen Kish and John Richardson!!! We are enormously grateful for this extraordinary effort.
Wow! This is one incredible submission. It is so comprehensive and informative and really powerful – I am absolutely delighted, and impressed! Thanks so much, John, Stephen and Tricia – literally I can only imagine how much work you put into this. Great job!
I am in awe of the never ending efforts of Stephen, John, Tricia and others.
I admit I have not even found time to read it yet, so I’m at a loss to understand where these folks found the time, energy and stamina to do all of this while also fighting for us on so many fronts and sharing so much of themselves with others.
They must surely be stretched to the max, but I have never heard one of them complain–or even express it.
