Do you need a US passport? Are you thinking about making a visit to the New York City passport office to get your US passport? Well, believe it or not, some people actually get rid of their US passports. The latest celebrity to get rid of her US passport is in Switzerland. The mayor of Zurich traveled to the US Embassy in Bern, Switzerland to give up her US citizenship. At the embassy, they punched holes in her US passport and she renounced her US citizenship.
The Swiss mayor who gave up her US passport is 52 year old Corinne Mauch, who was born in Iowa City, Iowa. She lived in the Midwest for her early years and has lived in Switzerland for over 30 years. Mauch has been mayor of Zurich sinch 2009 and was elected after spending a decade serving on the city council.
Mauch’s office states that she did not give up her US citizenship for tax reasons but also mentioned that “she won’t miss the bureaucracy of the IRS, the American tax office.”
Rather than deal with the IRS paperwork, Mauch renounced her US citizenship and destroyed her US passport.
