Dutch people with an American passport are giving up their American nationality on a large scale before a new tax law is implemented next year. This new law means that they will have to file a tax return in the United States. If they don't, their bank accounts may be frozen, BNR reports.
The number of Dutch who want to give up their American citizenship increased sixfold since 2016, Dan Durlacher of Americans Overseas, a firm that helps Americans in the Netherlands, said to the broadcaster. This year it involves around 1,700 people.
