  Original Published: 9/5/2013 More Americans living abroad are ditching their citizenship. And the Internal Revenue Service may have something to do with it. A new law requiring foreign institutions to report all assets owned by Americans will soon go into effect. That means folks with big cash stashes abroad will have to pay taxes on those monies.

Some who are deciding to hand over their passports are just tired of all the paperwork and money that goes into filing taxes in two countries.
