As an expatriate PT (Permanent Tourist or Prior Taxpayer) I legally do not have to pay income taxes. Nearly a decade ago when I lived in Canada and complained about the socialist government and the taxes many brainwashed government lovers would tell me, “if you don’t like it, leave.”
I happily did and it’s been easily one of the best things I’ve ever done. Nothing feels so great as not having to track all your income and expenses and spending hours, days or weeks “filing” your taxes. So, each year around this time I get awakened from my own little bubble in paradise when I see a headline reminding the serfs that it is time to pay their due. This year in the US it is April 17th. In Canada it is April 30th.
