Washington aumenta los impuestos a la renta de estadounidenses viviendo fuera del imperio
El congreso en Washington ha aumentado el impuesto sobre la renta de estadounidenses que viven en el extranjero. Nadie se puede escapar de la garra imperial.
In an effort to raise revenues, tax writers in Congress added a last-minute provision that retroactively increased taxes for Americans living abroad. But the sudden imposition of new taxes has surprised overseas taxpayers, and it has employers concerned about the added cost.
The increase for Americans abroad was added at the last minute to the $69 billion tax cut legislation that was signed last week. Americans living overseas paid almost $3.5 billion in United States income taxes in 2001, the latest year for which data is available, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
