"Same Country Exception" in the WSJ

An excellent op-ed piece has appeared in the Wall Street Journal laying out the concept of the "same country exception" to FATCA reporting that AARO and its partner organizations advocate, and drawing attention to the letter written by the Co-Chairs of the Americans Abroad Caucus, Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Mick Mulvaney, to Treasury Secretary Lew and IRS Commissioner Koskinen.

Anyone who has not already contacted his/her legislator to urge him/her to co-sign this letter should forward the link to Mr. Lachowitz's very clear and concise article.  The letter will be sent in the next few days and its effectiveness will be directly proportional to the number of co-signers from both sides of the aisle in the House of Representatives!
