Why didn't DJT think of this first?

Here's to North Korea, may they never run out of Nigerian Princes.

Well there goes the tree bark I was saving for dinner.

The U.S already requires expats to file U.S taxes.

Considering that is probably more than 10% of their annual pay in China...

I wonder how many will decide to instead spend that money seeking a path to South Korea.

God, that sounds like something Trump would do, a Trump Loyalty Tax.

Loyalty and love are a lot alike. They both fark you when you least expect it.

I thought NK took all their pay.  That the companies actually paid the NK government not the "employee".  That was the basis of the sanction to end them home.

Also, seems like this could backfire since the workers have to send their pay back anyway. Every worker they remove is less Swiss Cheese for Dear Leader!

DJT would say that US citizens earning over $400K would be exempt.

It's North Korea. Paying that tithing with counterfeit money should be considered A-OK.

Why do so-called-progressives around the world always see taxing the poor as a fix for everything?

American citizens abroad have had to pay U.S. income taxes for decades now.  Up until recently we were the only country that required tribute for the privilege of being an American abroad.

Best Korea is merely following our lead.

Yeah! Kim Jong-un is a progressive! Bzzzzt zap zap does not compute.

FTA:
"Failure to pay the new tax will entail the loss of their work permit and forced to return home to North Korea."

That's probably the most effective threat they can make.  "Pay us or else you go back to our shiathole country."
Watch how fast those wallets open.  Also observe as this "loyalty fund" becomes an annual affair.

I thought that was only if you earned over a certain amount (I believe it is around $100,000)? Plus a lot of expats get a lot of exceptions, such as being able to deduct the cost of your rent and utilities from your base salary.

I don't know the details. I just remember it because of a CBC special that discussed it as part of some coverage of Americans living in Canada.

You are right the exemption is the first $105k; plus you can deduct any tax paid to foreign governments.

Many countries have a similar arrangement. My joke was that Kim wants the money to directly to him.

We have done such a shiatty job running the country. We need you to pay us extra to fix it.

Eritrea does it too. And you do get services; if you get murdered the FBI will open an investigation.

I think the US Gov't. should help out.  IF Trump loses in November, offer to help the workers pay off the loyalty fee in Trump/Kim coins from the White House gift shop.  I've been told they're sure to be collectibles.  Hell, ice the deal by throwing in a gross of "Trumpy Bears".

Oh I got the joke. I was just curious about the details of expats paying taxes.

Taxation is mandatory crowd funding.
