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 second quarter of 2018.
The number of published expatriates for the quarter was 1,090. This number is almost the same as the number for the first quarter of 2018 (1,099 expatriates). It seemed like there was exponential growth in the number of expatriates from 2008 until the end of 2016. However, the numbers seem to be leveling off, or even dropping.
Below is a chart of the quarterly expatriates from 2008 thru the second quarter of 2018. For our prior coverage of expatriation, see all posts tagged Expatriation.
