A friend of mine here in Canada is one of those that moved here whith his parents when he was 10 yrs old. He is now in his 50's and never has made any income in the U.S. and owes no tax, but regardless he is obligated by U.S. law to file for tax. This is causing him a lot of grief.
Another lunatic law by the U.S. .... increasing the size of the bureaucratic army to chase for pennies.
