Americans Helping Americans Abroad

District 03, Joyce Beatty

Question 1: Taxation

Would you commit to working with Americans residing abroad to reform the current citizenship-based US tax system?

I am committed to making sure that the U.S. tax system works for all Americans, including those hardworking individuals and families living overseas.

Question 2: Services

Will you support on-line access to government agencies and adequate funding for consular functions upon which Americans abroad rely?

Yes.

Question 3: Banking

Would you support an enforceable right for all US citizens to a US bank account so they can retain their US savings and retirement accounts and make and receive payments in the United States?

While it is critically important to have strong banking laws and regulations to ensure our financial system and banking institutions are not being used to further illegal activities, we need to also recognize that these strict rules can have unintended consequences, especially on Americans living abroad. Although access to our financial system should be available to all U.S. citizens, no matter where they are currently residing, we need to be careful about making wholesale changes to laws and regulations that are intended to stop illicit gains from entering our financial system. That is why I fully support engagement and further study with the U.S. Department of Treasury, state and federal law enforcement, and interested stakeholders on how our current regulatory regime impacts the millions of U.S. citizens that reside overseas. This should be an issue we can come together on a bipartisan basis to solve..
