 ====== Wiki & Knowledge Base ====== ====== Wiki & Knowledge Base ======
  
 +Welcome to the Let's Fix the Tax Treaty! Wiki.  Here you'll find information pertaining to the US practice of citizenship-based taxation on Australian residents and citizens, as well as the effects of both FATCA and the Australia/US Tax Treaty on both US citizens residing in Australia and Australian citizens residing in the US.

 +===== Context & Purpose =====
 +
 +The purpose of this Wiki is to gather and maintain a common information source pertaining to our cause.  The purpose of the **//Let's Fix the Tax Treaty!//** group is to influence the Australian Government to resist unfair and unjust US extra-territorial taxation.   //Let’s Fix the Tax Treaty!// advocates for the Australian Government to renegotiate the under-pinning legacy tax treaties and intergovernmental agreements to provide a fair go for all Australians.

 Presently, there is little awareness by government, policy makers or the general public of the issues caused to Australians through the US practices of Citizenship-based taxation.  Consequently, to affect change, we first need to educate Policy Makers and influencers such as the Media.  To do this, it will be important to create a **defensible** evidence base in support of our position.   Presently, there is little awareness by government, policy makers or the general public of the issues caused to Australians through the US practices of Citizenship-based taxation.  Consequently, to affect change, we first need to educate Policy Makers and influencers such as the Media.  To do this, it will be important to create a **defensible** evidence base in support of our position.
