Dems Abroad survey of US citizens on taxes from income abroad seeks participants. The US is the only country that taxes all citizens, including nonresidents, on their worldwide income—with the possible exceptions of Eritrea and North Korea. This system of citizenship-based taxation obligates Americans living abroad to file tax returns on income generated overseas, as well as in the US, and to report the accounts they have in foreign financial institutions.
