At long last…

Since I started this site I’ve had a Google News thingy tracking things like “renounce citizenship”. Every once in a while, something interesting comes along.

A couple months ago there began the annual string of stories about people giving up US citizenship, which almost invariably mention that renunciants’ names are required to be published in the Federal Register.

So I went and checked the Federal Register online. Searched for my name, no result. Located the reports that are periodically filed (“Quarterly Publication of Individuals Who Have Chosen To Expatriate, as Required by Section 6039G”) by the IRS, searched them from the end of 2008 to present. Hmm, I wasn’t there.

Eventually, I was able to track down the IRS employee responsible for compiling those reports, and called her. She seemed a bit taken aback by my call and my request to have my renunciation published, but she took my info (including links to supporting documents on this site) and promised she’d get it done.

Lo and behold! 76 FR 7907 – Quarterly Publication of Individuals, Who Have Chosen To Expatriate, as Required by Section 6039G (PDF, last page)

And that ends that!

    hi…i have heard that you have given it up with The USA…i would like to ask you if this would be possible if you would have kids or even if your vision of society is not only for individualist?

    Er, of course it’s possible. I’m not sure about the last part of your question, though. I quit being a citizen of a state; I didn’t quit being part of society.
