Re: Shame they pay no tax elsewhere

If you're a US citizen, and you live in the UK (for example), you probably won't have to pay US taxes because you're already paying higher UK taxes, but you will have to prove to the US tax authorities that you are indeed paying those UK taxes. Of course, the US has a tax system from the last century so you'll have to fill out all those forms yourself (or pay someone else to do it for you, which is the intention of keeping it so manual).

As others have pointed out, no other country will try and tax you on income you made elsewhere, one of my friends has never taken up his duel US citizenship because of this.
