The 10-year rule you may have known in prior years has been replaced with a new expatriation regime. The new rules are somewhat more complicated and require the expatriate to pay an “exit” tax, however in the long run, the new scheme is more efficiently enforced and, in the right circumstances, provides for significant tax benefits to the expatriate.
