This year will set a record for expatriations by U.S. taxpayers, with at least a 33% increase from the previous high in 2011 reports The Wall Street Journal.

According to tax lawyer Andrew Mitchel who tracks the data, these expatriations reached a record high of 2,369 for the year.

Thailand attorney, Jiraporn Thongpong, commented, “this report comes as no surprise to us. A large number of our clients are expats from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe, many of whom moved to Thailand after becoming disillusioned with life in their home country.”

I wouldn’t rely on that data very much. It conflicts with the FBI NICS count, doesn’t include many names such as mine and reports a much lower number than a FOIA on green card discards. The true figure is likely much higher.
