Facebook Co-Founder Renounces His US Citizenship And Moves to Singapore, All to Avoid Taxes
I hope all of you are following the douche trail of tax evader Eduardo Saverin and enjoying it as much as me. As you may recall, this fuckstick decided to renounce his US citizenship and move to Singapore—land of the free, home of the cane—about the same time as the Facebook IPO so he would save $67 million in taxes. Now his attorney is telling the world that only a delusional idiot would think that the reason he renounced his citizenship was because of taxes. Why? Let’s look at point #10 on the State Department form that Ed had to sign to relinquish his citizenship [pdf]:
I understand that if my renunciation of United States citizenship is determined by the United States Attorney General to be motivated by tax avoidance purposes, I will be found excludable from the United States [...]
In other words, unless Ed gets a little special treatment, he can’t ever set foot in the United States.
Here’s my guess at how this went down. Ed’s attorney, sensing the possibility that he will be able to stuff a good portion of that $67 million into his own wallet, told Ed that a little legal maneuvering was all that’s necessary to guarantee that Ed can land his private jet on US soil. I’m sure the attorney figured that a year of backroom dealing and careful legal maneuvering would get Ed’s travel rights back. Unfortunately, Ed’s attorney didn’t factor in the douche factor:
“This had nothing to do with taxes,” [Ed] insisted. “I was born in Brazil, I was an American citizen for about 10 years. I thought of myself as a global citizen.”
This motherfucker is so big and bad that his passport says “World” on it. Proles like you just wouldn’t understand. Ed’s 30 years old. He’s got at least 70 more years to be very careful where he spits his gum.
