Re: To file or not to file a US tax return...

Suppose I am a 34 year old US citizen. Suppose I graduated from college when I was 24 and I worked in the USA for the following 10 years. Now I move to country A, I get a job in country A, I become a citizen of country A, I plan to retire in country A, I do not own any asset in the USA and I never want to live in the USA again.

Question 1: Why should I file a US tax return every year?

Question 2: What will happen if I never file a US tax return again?

Thank you.
Answer 1: Because it's the law.
Answer 2: You'll be hunted down by the IRS like Leona Helmsley and locked away in Camp Cupcake like Martha Stewart, or assassinated like al-Awlaki.
