Write to your Senators to tell them "the time has come!"
Last week, I sent letters to those responsible for advancing the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) to its ratification by the US Senate, pointing out that since Somalia (Somalia!) managed to finalize its ratification process on October 1, the United States is now the only outlier in the world.
Let Congress know...
If you and/or Americans around you have lost access to financial services at home or abroad, or if FATCA-FBAR reporting has just become too much for you... join in the AARO* letter-writing campaign today!
Election Day is November 4th - but it's closer than you think if you're a US voter who lives overseas. Before you can vote, you must register/request a ballot (remember that we are now required to do this every year!). If you have not registered yet, do it now - to be sure your voice will be heard in November.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 4, 2014, but most registered overseas voters will receive their ballots in late September or early October. When your ballot comes, follow the instructions for filling it out and returning it as carefully as you can, and do it as soon as you can, to ensure that you cast a valid vote in good time to be counted.
Did you get your FBAR done and e-filed in time?
Or did you encounter obstacles you just couldn't deal with?
2 Must-Do's before the summer!
1) Please contribute to the AARO "Does Your Bank Love You?" survey, and
2) Don't leave home without... registering to vote!
