OK, I've asked this before and I'm going to try again. Before moving to another country, I think it is important to know how their taxation system affects US citizens contemplating a move abroad. Is their anyone in France that can explain to me in a clear way how their system works. I know that they have a tax treaty with the US so we are not taxed twice. However, I'm led to believe that there could be additional income tax imposed by the French on US income. For example, any tax that the US gov't has set at a 0% rate(lower brackets of qualified dividends, capital gains and municipal income). Would that be taxed in France and if so, at what rates? Come on you US ex-pats, some one must have an answer somewhere! Thanks for all help.
