America is one of only a handful of countries that taxes it's citizens who are living and working abroad. For instance, let's say I went to Ireland for a year and worked there. My Irish income would still be subject to US tax law. Every year there are a handful of Americans living abroad who actually give up their US citizenship to avoid paying that tax liability.
