Americans renounce citizenship over taxes

Julie Veilleux of Lac du Bonnet MB may face at least $80,000 in fines. Born in Ohio, departing the United States after eight years, Veilleux has lived in Canada for almost forty years and became a Canadian citizen in 1995. Veilleux and her sister travelled to Calgary earlier in August to renounce US citizenship. “Veilleux fears the worst — being sued by the IRS, being stopped at the border or having a lien placed against her family’s modest bungalow.”
