RT segment from April 15, 2013 in “honor” of US income tax day. Features noted figures Jet Li and Eduardo Saverin, who recently quit their American citizenship for tax reasons. Freddi M. Weintraub, a tax attorney, provides insight into the law surrounding expatriation. Segment concludes with an interview with Mike Gogulski (me), who renounced his US citizenship in 2008 for political reasons and has lived without any nationality since — a stateless person.

    RT is using the official US Treasury figures on US renunciations. FBI figures on individuals who renounced in 2012 list over 4000, though. Given that FBI figures exclude relinquishments, maybe 8000-10000 people gave up their US passport last year.
