AARO on May 11, 2021, submitted written testimony to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee's Subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Growth related to its April 27, 2021, hearing entitled "Creating Opportunity Through a Fairer Tax System."

The testimony complains about prejudicial assumptions and exaggerated stereotypes related to the perception of the wealth and attitudes of Americans living outside the United States.

It takes on, in particular, the presumption that overseas Americans are a wealthy elite seeking to evade their U.S. tax obligations and notes the harsh consequences for individuals, families, small business owners, and entrepreneurs of the myriad tax laws and regulations adopted on the basis of assumptions that are false or cannot be proven.

AARO reiterates its call for consideration of proposals to move away from the current citizenship-based taxation system and for all members of Congress to take steps that would enhance their understanding of the socioeconomic conditions of overseas Americans.

AARO Supports Reduction of U.S. Residency Requirement for Citizenship Transmission to Minor Children Born Abroad
AARO on May 5, 2021, endorsed the United Families Act (HR2920), introduced by Representatives Escobar (D-TX) and Valadao (D-CA), which would inter alia eliminate the U.S. residency requirement for a U.S. citizen parent in order to transmit American nationality to a child born overseas with a non-American co-parent.

This proposed change is consistent with AARO's longstanding goal of modifying legislation and regulations that have the effect of discriminating against American citizens living abroad.

AARO’s actions have always been particularly geared to preserving the unity of American families by promoting gender equality and reducing unwarranted impediments to the transmission of American nationality within the family unit. Another key provision would permit non-American family members of U.S. citizens, under certain circumstances, to remain in the U.S. while their application is under adjudication.

Banks in the country of residence have refused the business of 28% of our survey respondents. You have specifically named 34 such institutions.

On March 18, 2021 AARO and AAWE hosted an informative video conference with consular staff from the U.S. Embassy in Paris to discuss current citizenship issues. Because Zoom limited the number of attendees, we have made both a video record and a written report of the conference so that we can share the information provided.

Topics covered by the consular staff include:

• current restrictions on travel to the U.S.

• establishing U. S. citizenship for children and grandchildren

• passport renewals

• reporting births to establish U.S. citizenship

Links to the video, the written report, and a set of useful emails and links provided by the consular staff can be found on the AARO website at:

https://www.aaro.org/issues/citizenship/869-us-citizenship-conference-video-report

While some of the discussion focused on issues in France, much of the information provided will be useful to Americans around the world with citizenship questions. Feel free to share this link with others.

We hope that you find this presentation as useful as we have.

A Note on Advocacy

A review and redraft of AARO’s Overview (which serves as an “executive summary”) and specific position papers on taxation, banking access, access to agencies and due process, citizenship, voting and social security was carried out this summer to ensure their accuracy and consistency with recent developments.

The updated Overview and Position Papers can be found on the AARO website (see link below). This work was undertaken to facilitate AARO's ongoing efforts to ensure that the issues of greatest concern to AARO members were taken into account during this election year.
