I will be finishing school soon and I will be looking for a job with a company to live and work in Europe. I want to go to Europe (or Asia or Australia) because I want to experience new things and live life somewhere else. Once I get my ideal job, I plan on staying there until the day I die without ever stepping foot back into the US. I just wanted to know how much in taxes would the US Government take from me. I'm also bouncing around the idea of renouncing my US Citizenship. I don't feel American at all. I don't even tell foreigners that I'm American when I travel (they probably can tell from the accent). I just feel that I just happened to be born in the US. Yes, my family has been here for who knows how long. Then with the whole Trayvon Martin case. It's not a great time to be an African-American (well I'm Black and White but I consider myself as only Black) in the US but then again when was it ever. I would go ahead and take that step but I'm also weighing mainly the tax penalties for it. Now, obviously I will make sure to stay in my country long enough to get citizenship somewhere then renounce my American one.
