Re: Oh boy, oh boy oh boy.......
Silly to argue with the irrational.
My wife is a British citizen. Imagine, if England required her to pay them, even though she lives and works in the US and only visits there. Same with mega yachts, they are purchased outside the US and stay outside the US the majority of the time. It's not that wealthy hire lawyers to scam the system, they are simply buying assets they keep elsewhere most of the time. This is fully accessible to everyone, if one can or wishes to buy an asset overseas. Obviously, most don't have the resources to own any yacht, but that doesn't make those that can scammers.
It's nothing short of amazing that the US has become the greatest economic nation the world has ever known and in such a short time. We value and expound the opportunity to become successful. However, once you are, you become a target of disdain. Wild stuff. No one is doing anything wrong by following international rules. The mob is not allowed to say they don't like that someone bought the asset elsewhere, so you have to pay me anyway. Thankfully, our laws don't allow that either.
