Meghan Markle and her baby will be liable for US taxes

Meghan Markle’s firstborn child, seventh in line to the British throne, will automatically become a US citizen and thus be liable for federal income tax. While Markle, also known as the Duchess of Sussex, can choose to renounce her US citizenship, her child would have to wait until he or she turns 18 before taking the same step.

You guys see that BBC link talking about a California officer saving the life of a choking baby? (Hopefully they will leave that link up there.) That story has more substance than anything related to Meghan Markle.

Good luck enforcing the US tax code against the British Royal family. Also if she renounces her citizenship before the child is born the child will not be a US citizen.

As long as she pays her British taxes, (which are forgiven, I think) she will not owe US taxes.

I thought your citizenship was based on where you were born?
