  2. The FBAR penalties are ruining the lives of Americans living all over the world, and this is an excellent summary. American Citizens Abroad in the United States has called for outright repeal of the FATCA legislation, which has been passed but not implemented. The FATCA legislation is even worse than the FBAR rules, with devastating consequences for the US economy and for all US citizens living abroad. Everyone who reads this should contact any family or friends or reporters in the US and get the story into the United States press. We think if we have enough US reporting, we can get traction for the Repeal FATCA campaign. Please join us in the fight !
