Re: US Taxes: Come Clean or Jump Ship?

How does renouncing citizenship relieve you of your duty to file tax forms for your former years a US citizen ? In my experience, if you owe, you owe. Delaying repayment just becomes expensive, and hangs over your head.
That, at least, seems pretty unlikely. For one thing, I don't think the US even really knows I exist. Although I do have a SS#, I wasn't able to get a US bank account with it.

For that matter, the most I ever earned until two months ago was about 80K CHF, for the most part considerably less. So, AFAIK, if I had done all the paper work, I would never have had to pay anyway.

BTW, the 80K was roughly 10 years ago and lasted two years. And, come to think, it was actually less than 70K ...
