For those of us who are disgruntled with the American government or otherwise wish to relocate to a foreign country and renounce our citizenship for whatever reason, it will now cost you a hefty $450 fee.
Popular VideoPeople were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:
That's on top of the additional 10 years of taxes beyond the date of renunciation that some renunciants will be subjected to (that is, if they decide you're renouncing as a way to try to evade your taxes - which your fate as that is in the hands of the person doing the paperwork).
Is America really trying to make us slaves for life? It sure seems like it.
