I'm a US citizen who has been considering moving overseas to a variety of places or at least traveling heavily. I would like to avoid paying more child support to my ex-wife as I make more money. It's fine up to a point, since it is benefiting my children, but I anticipate making a lot more money (yes, that could be wishful thinking...) and I do not want to work my ass off just to put more money in the account of someone that I hate. You might not agree with my motivation, but I've been researching Banking Secrecy, Tax Havens, and Online Privacy issues for months. I've come to the conclusion that you would have to launder money, adopt a new identity or alias, be very careful to sanitize your digital communications, and break US law by not reporting your income to the IRS in order to guarantee yourself total privacy. Either that or renounce your US citizenship. There are many websites that will help you set up shop or adopt a new identity offshore/overseas, get multiple passports or residency/citizenship in other countries, anonymous ownership of accounts/cards/businesses, and/or "minimize" your taxes, but they all seem to tap dance around the fact that Uncle Sam wants US citizens to pay taxes on all their income, regardless of where or how they get it. If you don't report overseas accounts or income, you are breaking the law. You also cannot hoard the money in corporate accounts and not pay yourself - that is also considered tax evasion or obstruction of justice. I had planned on doing this - making money and saving it in corporate accounts, not paying myself untl I retired (early) - but there seems to be no point. I had also considered keeping US assets (domestic real estate, cars) under the name of a foreign foundation/trust, but if you live in it, manage it, or use it, then (divorce and tax) attorneys and their private eyes can figure out that you actually own it. Then they can track down where it is owned and who helped you conceal it. Do you really want the word of a foreign attorney to be the only thing standing between you and having all of your assets revealed? Ever heard of a bribe? If you're considering or engaged in the things that I've researched, then you really need to visit assetsearchblog.com to see the flip side of the coin. The bottom line is this - I think that in order to hide assets from Uncle Sam you need to either break the law or renounce citizenship - or renounce AND break the law. Am I wrong? I still think that it is a good idea to diversify and secure/conceal as much as possible, but if the government knows about it, they can take it. What is the most reasonable solution to this problem? Buying a diplomatic passport?
