Representatives of the Democrats Abroad group are scheduled to meet a number of individuals in Congress in the coming week. The meetings, which are reported to be taking place between May 14 and May 16, will see the Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force visit Capitol Hill to discuss the need for Residency Based Taxation to support overseas Americans who are currently required to file annual US Tax returns as part of the United States' Citizenship Based Taxation system.
The Taxation Task Force's visit to Capitol Hill follows an interview The American conducted with Carmelan Polce, head of the Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force, in which Ms Polce explained the work of Democrats Abroad on the issue of taxation for overseas Americans.
Ahead of the scheduled meetings, the Democrats Abroad Taxation Task Force have encouraged overseas Americans to contact their member of Congress to highlight the issues that they are facing with regards to US Tax. In a recent blog post, the DA's Taxation Task Force said that during the meetings "We will be discussing the need for residency based taxation and the design elements of the proposed legislation to enact it ... We need those determined to see this important reform enacted to reach out to their members of Congress this week and next week to demand it.
