Myth #4 - Beware of Taxes

Myth

Someone said that if you vote from abroad you will be reported to your state tax office and get a tax bill.
 

Truth

Voting in federal elections cannot be a basis for a state to assert tax liability on its overseas voters.

It is illegal for a state to assert the use of its voting infrastructure in federal elections as a basis for asserting tax liability on the part of its foreign resident ex-residents. Expats can vote in federal elections without fear that doing so will affect their status vis-a-vis the state tax authorities.
