Meghan Markle Joins Foreign Minister Boris Johnson as Individuals Hounded, Previously Hounded, or To Be Hounded, by the IRS

The TaxProf's take on Prince Harry's bride-to-be, via Instapundit, namely that Meghan Markle’s U.S. Citizenship Could Cause Tax Headaches For British Royal Family, is a reminder that the most famous Briton, or the most famous person, to renounce his or her dual American citizenship (back in 2015) is a fellow by the name of Boris Johnson.

The foreign minister of the UK (who has long been and will continue to be a leading candidate for the office of prime minister itself) was hounded for so long by America's IRS that, in disgust during his tenure as mayor of London, he renounced his dual American citizenship in 2015.

A massive breach of the Fourth Amendment: The vast majority of those renouncing citizenship are middle-class Americans, living overseas, fully compliant with their U.S. tax obligations
