The Onerous Compliance Cost of the Internal Revenue Code
The tax system is a complicated nightmare that forces taxpayers to devote ever-larger amounts of time, money, energy, and other resources in hopes of complying with the internal revenue code and avoiding IRS persecution. This CF&P Foundation video shows that this corrupt mess is the result of 97 years of social engineering and industrial policy that began almost immediately after that dark day in 1913 that the income tax was created. www.freedomandprosperity.org

This video suggests that the compliance cost of filing taxes is $1000 per person per year. As an expat, you need to file all of the other forms. Your financial cost will be much more.

The question is simple: do you want to spend your time paying people to help you fill out forms or do you want a life?
