To The Asset Protection Newsletter
- Because our basic premise is that to protect ones assets and ones privacy
that one cannot live in the USA or the UK. These nations have become
'rouge' nations in which politicians make money for themselves through
their political power. [Witness Dick Cheney: War Profiteer. At last count
Halliburton had 58 offshore subsidiaries in Caribbean tax havens. With
Cheney at the helm Halliburton's tax payments to the U.S. went from $302
million in 1998 to zero in 1999, when they also received a refund of $85
million from the Internal Revenue Service.] Yet this same war criminal
wants YOUR tax dollars. Move overseas and you can structure your
taxes. If you are living overseas but plan to return to the USA you MUST
pay your American income tax regardless of where you are earning your income.
On this page are a large number of resources for Expat Taxes plus a Newsletter
on Expat Taxes, articles by attorneys and public accounts. We also have
links to those who will help you with your Expat Taxes. As an expat, it
is possible to defer a great deal of your taxes; so read the articles and
find out how to do things correctly.
Passports - Economic Citizenship
- If you get a 2nd passport and flee America the US Government can't take
your money as easily as they could if you were still living in the USA.
Therefore the US Goverment is doing everything to keep you from getting
a second passport, closing resources and threatening tax-haven nations
with sanctions. We explain the many benefits of a Second Passport
- Passports are a relatively modern invention. Until about
a century ago, entering one country didn’t generally require official proof
of citizenship or nationality in another one. The rise of nation-states,
nationalism, and especially World Wars I and II made it essential for international
travelers to present passports when they entered a country. Today, governments
increasingly use passports as instruments of coercion. On this page we
supply what information we can. You can get a second passport; it's just
harder to get then it was a few years ago . . . why don't you wait
a few more years, then it will be impossible and you won't have to worry
about it. Your fate will be sealed. We understand that the USA Government
is considering legislation that will prevent certain 'citizens' from getting

Of Offshore Banks -
Listing banks in over two dozen of the the top offshore tax havens - An
offshore bank is defined by its location, or 'jurisdiction'. An offshore
bank is usually located outside of the depositors country of residence,
typically within a jurisdiction that levies very low taxes, or no taxes
at all. Each jurisdiction varies in its degree of taxation, its degree
of privacy, and its services. Offshore banks located in politically and
economically stable jurisdictions provide a safe-haven for assets that
may be at risk in the nation in which the investor lives and holds residency.
In the historical past, Americans living and working in abroad
would open bank accounts with a local bank in whatever country they were
living and working, and if it earned any interest at all would never show
it on their U.S. income tax return. This was part of the unofficial
benefits of living in outside of the U.S. Handled correctly; it still can
To Bank Offshore - Why Bank Offshore? - The
Governments of the world are out of control . . . and broke. They
need your assets to make themselves solvent. That they squander those
assets is forgone. Is 2012 the Last Year for Opening an Offshore Bank Account
for Americans? - On March 28, 2010 President Obama signed the
Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act into law. According to official
government press releases, this was enacted to prevent offshore tax abuses
by US persons. While this is certainly true, it doesn’t tell the
whole story. In reality it is a way to prevent an outflow of capital
from the US as well as implement very strict currency controls robbing
you of your personal freedom. - - Is the US Monetary System on the Verge
of Collapse? - Tune into CNBC or click onto any of the
dozens of mainstream financial news sites, and you’ll find an endless array
of opinions on the latest wiggle in equity, bond and commodities markets.
Banking Offshore is prudent, find out how to do it, and where.
of the World - StockMarkets of the World -
A directory of the world's stock markets - There is more than one stock
market, more than ten, more than a hundred. There is vast array of international
markets and unique ways to play them. There are some who know the international
markets and are able to play little known markets and little known stocks
to their advantage - Especially during a economic crisis. How many stock
markets in the world? We have heard numerous estimates, but no definitive
answers. Interestingly, some markets do better than the tried & true.
Brazil came out of nowhere and stunned the world with a run up that showed
no signs of leveling off. When we started this website, China wasn't
even a contender. Does that mean that one should go looking for the
next opportunity? Sort of. Also See:

Is A Psychological Necessity - If we do not have the right to privacy,
we do not own the rights to our own lives
- We live in a world where privacy and individuality are under attack.
The right to privacy is more than an abstract necessity, it is also a psychological
necessity. If we do not have the right to privacy, we do not own the rights
to our own lives. Individuality entails making value judgments independent
of political, religious or social dogmas. In making value judgments
we make choices. In today's world, if the choices we make differ
from the status quo then we come under pressure to 'toe the line'. There
is no line to toe. We live in an intellectual vacuum, where short of the
logical choices we make in our own behalf, there are no other values. Our
Magazine & Websites stress privacy and living our life by our own standards,
protecting what is ours from those who have not earned it. In our privacy
index you'll find an excellent selection of important articles about Privacy,
how we're losing it, how to regain it, how to protect it. We believe these
articles are very important. If you want to continue to live free,

Trade Zones (FTZ's) - Wake Up! Free
Trade Zones Are Not Just For The Big Boys - A free trade zone (FTZ) or
export processing zone (EPZ) is one or more special areas of a country
where some normal trade barriers such as tariffs and quotas are eliminated
and bureaucratic requirements are lowered. Such zones allow tremendous
labor and tax savings. They don't have to be used strictly by large manufacturers;
they can be used by individuals who want to import / export, and by those
who want to sell products from offshore using the best possible infrastructure
- good shipping, good telephone systems, good facilities. The best
of all possible places to do business. Very much under-utilized by individuals
seeking to make a living offshore. Look into starting a business in a Free
Trade Zone. It's not just for the big boys.
