Re: US born

I'm sort of with Mehitabel on this, though not just for the taxation issues. This isn't something for the parents to decide for their child. It's the child's decision to make. As far as I know children have up to the age of 18 to claim US citizenship if they think they're entitled to it. I would wait, explain the situation to them when they're old enough to understand and then they can make an informed decision on whether they want to claim the citizenship or not - if they can claim it.

Who knows what the taxation, citizenship, world will be like in several years time. The law may also be clearer by that point.
