A record 3,415 Americans ditch their passports

Didn't Americans fight a war of Independence to reject taxes? Where's that fighting spirit now
Goodbye, sayonara, ciao, Uncle Sam!
The number of Americans choosing to give up their passports hit a record 3,415 last year, up 14% from 2013, and 15 times more than in 2008, when only 231 people renounced their citizenship.
Experts say the recent surge is coming from expats who no longer want to deal with complicated tax paperwork, a burden that has only gotten worse in recent years.
