Today the Treasury Department published the names of individuals who renounced their U.S. citizenship or terminated their long-term U.S. residency (“expatriated”) during the third quarter of 2014.
The number of published expatriates for the quarter was 776, which is the third highest quarterly number of published expatriates ever. The number of published expatriates for the first three quarters of 2014 has been 2,353 (1,001 + 576 + 776). Last year there was a record-breaking number of published expatriates (2,999). This year (2014) will break last year's record if there are at least 647 published expatriates in the fourth quarter. For a discussion of how the IRS compiles the data, see this post.
Below are two graphs which reflect the latest expatriation data. The first graph shows the quarterly number of published expatriates since 2008. The second graph shows the quarterly average of published expatriates per year through the third quarter of 2014.
