How Peter Thiel Saved $5 Billion Tax Free #PassportSheats

    Our new guest host Joshua Sheats from the Radical Personal Finance Podcasts is sharing today the story of the founder of PayPal and Palantir Peter Thiel. His famous story of obtaining New Zealand citizenship after spending there only 12 days. And how he avoids paying taxes on his five billion dollar net-worth by using Roth IRA.

    Should he renounce US citizenship and take money offshore. Or maybe invest money in an offshore trust held in a tax haven?

    Can you also avoid paying taxes with Roth IRA and keep living in the US? What can we learn from him and how to put in place a similar Plan B.
