Nonprofit hospitals swap breaks for mergers under law
Bloomberg
Some nonprofit hospitals are finding it easier to give up their tax exemption and merge with a for-profit company than to meet the charitable-care rules of the new health law.

CNNMoney

US tax law has some expatriates waiving the American flag
Los Angeles Times
Genevieve Besser knows that many people would kill to have what she's thinking of giving up. It's been her birthright for 52 years, something she's cherished and taken pride in. But being a U.S. citizen, she says, now seems more a penalty than a privilege.
