Americans Helping Americans Abroad

Question 1: Taxation

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

Yes, I support reform on current citizenship-based tax laws to make sure the process for overseas Americans to fill out their tax forms are not confusing and redundant..

Question 2: Services

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

Yes, I would support online access to government agencies. For services that have been reduced or eliminated, I would seek to restore their operation and secure their funding. Specifically, I would look to ways to allow for online accessing of their Social Security and Medicare accounts. I look forward to working with the Association of Americans Living Overseas to address this issue.

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?

Yes, I would support this right.
